CNRun uses canonical autotools and is normally installable by
./configure && make install.
Dependencies include libxml2, gsl, and lua libs.

In order to use the Lua package, if you installed CNrun into a prefix
other than /, you need to make sure LUA_CPATH contains the location of
cnrun.so (e.g. export LUA_CPATH="/path/to/cnrun/?.so;$LUA_CPATH"). You
should then be able to write 'require("cnrun")'.

For the standard GNU autotools install instructions, please consult
the original INSTALL file (commonly /usr/share/autoconf/INSTALL).
