1.3 Installing the pygsl interface

gsl-config must be on your path:

# unpack the source distribution
gzip -d -c pygsl-x.y.z.tar.gz|tar xvf-
cd pygsl-x.y.z
# do this with your prefered python version
# to set the gsl location explicitly use setup.py --gsl-prefix=/path/to/gsl
python setup.py build
# change to an user id, that is allowed to do installation
python setup.py install

Do not test the interface in the distribution root or in the directories src or pygsl.
