evolution python-0.0.4 needs installation guide

Hi all,
I know I'm being a bit of a pesky noob at the moment, but...
It's my theory that any great invention (like conduit) is only as useful as the layman can get it going. Anyway, I've just spent a whole afternoon scouring the net (and trying with frustration) to understand why the evolution dataproviders were not apppearing conduit's gui. And it wasn't until I came across a (rather small and hidden) bug report here: http://www.conduit-project.org/ticket/257 and then read here: http://www.conduit-project.org/wiki/evolution-python that... " note: if you install to somewhere other that /usr/ you must remember to set your PYTHONPATH evironment variable so that python will pickup the new library"

did I start fiddling around and eventually worked out that I needed to run "./configure --prefix=/usr" then "make" and "sudo make install" to get the beloved evolution dps to appear.

Please let me know if this post is in vain and I'm completely stupid, but when the conduit site reads :

To build evolution-python perform the following

./autogen.sh && make && sudo make install

and I run those commands and nothing works then it's pretty confusing AND it appears as if quite a few hours could have been saved if only there was an explicit entry that told me to type "./configure --prefix=/usr".

Please, for all dim-witted newbs like myself, put a step by step how to up on the site.

Cheers once again!
Keep up the great work.

Cheers, cheers,
