Currently installing ejabberd from the sources is nearly impossible.
After 'make install' you won't be able even start ejabberd without
reading docs. After reading docs you'll be able to start ejabberd, but
not stop ejabberd. Only after the user will find ejabberdctl which
isn't installed on 'make install' and has to be found in 'tools'
directory he possibly will be able to start it. (ejabberdctl isn't
documented anywhere though).
