Create a directory for building the software

The software will be installed to the ~/build/inst/ directory. The resulting tree will eventually look like:

    libquvi-scripts-$RELEASE/ -- extracted source code
    libquvi-$RELEASE/         -- extracted source code
    quvi-$RELEASE/            -- extracted source code
    inst/                     -- installed files/binaries
    tar/                      -- downloaded tarballs

Begin by creating the build directory:

$ mkdir -p ~/build/{inst,tar}

The remaining directories (under “build”) will be created later. Export the destination path:

$ export DEST=`pwd`/inst

The steps will make use of this environment variable throughout the installation.
