+=head3 Packaging and Distribution
+Each language, operating system, or distribution is free to package
+modules in their own way, using their own usual build and install tools.
+The default distribution format is a tarball containing the source files
+and a cross-platform build infrastructure (the 'make' variants are a
+good choice, and can be combined with Autoconf, CMake, Perl, Python,
+etc. for more complex conditional builds).
