+This software requires only Python to build. The build system, based on waf,
+is included in this source distribution.
+This package contains everything necessary to compile against and/or use LV2
+plugins and extensions: a header file, pkg-config file, and LV2 bundle (with
+Turtle files).
+The configure option --bundle-only can be used to install only the lv2core.lv2
+bundle. This is useful for installing the bundle to a project-specific or
+user-specific location (e.g. ~/.lv2).
+See README for details on how to correctly package LV2, and how to depend on
+LV2 in other projects.
+Generic Waf Instructions
+As with most build systems, building and installing a project with waf is done
+in three separate stages:
+ 1. ./waf configure [OPTIONS]
+ 2. ./waf build
+ 3. ./waf install
+The default command is build. For example:
+ ./waf configure --prefix=/some/where
+ ./waf -j2
+ sudo ./waf install
+The environment variable DESTDIR can be used to add a prefix to all install
+paths (useful for packaging), for example:
+ DESTDIR=./lv2core.pkg ./waf install
+Run './waf --help' for detailed option information.
