Thanks, I didn't realize that those were shell-specific commands!

Default word-movement is awkward, but found a nice article on configuring it: iamzed.com/2009/04/15/word-movement-in-iterm-on-os-x

comment Good introduction to Subversion for inexperienced users?
Yeah, this is really important. The subversion book is the best reference there is, and it's wonderfully well-written, and totally accessible to people who have never heard of VCS before.

comment Simple file transfer
As somebody who's worked on Giver in the past, I can say it's a neat app, but it's totally unmaintained and has plenty of bugs, especially when it comes to transferring large files. Don't expect much from it.

comment Is automake and autoconf the standard way to compile code?
Interestingly, lots of Mono projects are trying to migrate to msbuild now that xbuild is working so well. It makes Windows/Mac support a bit easier. Mono has so much C code that I'm not sure how practical it would be for them to move to xbuild. But autoconf works great, so do whatever works for you. :-)

Small note: autogen.sh does not execute make for you, just configure.

comment How to compile and install programs from source
I had added a comment here about what autogen.sh does, but I think it's much better answered by Miguel in Louis's question here: unix.stackexchange.com/questions/158/…

comment How to compile and install programs from source
Matt is absolutely right, this is why I said "for the most part", and first advocated looking up the project's website. The autogen.sh/configure advice will hold for pretty much every GNOME module, and a ton of other projects, too. Some projects don't use automake, and will only have Makefile, and you will just run make && sudo make install. Some Python projects will only have a setup.py, which you will call to install (since there is no real compile setup). There are plenty of other build/install systems out there, too. Hopefully README or INSTALL files will explain exactly what to do.
