Summary0000290: Wrong installation instructions in both INSTALL and README.DEVELOPER files
DescriptionIn the INSTALL, there are generic "./configure; make; make install" instructions but it seems that correct process is

autoreconf -f -i
./configure --disable-silent-rules
make install

In the README.DEVELOPER, there is

    autoreconf -f -i
    make distclean
    ./configure --disable-silent-rules
    make -j4
    make -C tests check

but "make distclean" would complain "make: *** No rule to make target distclean'".

Tested on Ubuntu 20.04 by myself.

Original report:
Steps To Reproduce./configure
autoreconf -f -i
make distclean
TagsNo tags attached.

I added a comment that it can fail in README.DEVELOPER. The INSTALL file is fine because it instructs you to use 'make distclean' to cleanup after a previous build.
