Some FAQ Entries To Consider

I've read pretty much every post on these forums, and have downloaded and built Ice and all it's required libraries (bzip2, openssl, etc.). Here are a few suggestions for FAQ entries that would have saved me time in evaluating Ice.

- Several people, including me, have had problems with using incorrect versions of the libraries Ice depends on. It would be very helpful for people downloading Ice if there was a web page (or an entry in the FAQ) detailing which libraries Ice requires, and which versions are known to be compatible.

- A quick description of or a link to the licenses of the required libraries.

- When in doubt, recompile it all. Many linking problems or problems with some of the tests failing are fixed when Ice and all its required libraries are recompiled with the same compiler.
