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
Ready....

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