"make keywords.c" requires "gperf" which was not installed on my
system. There should either be a reference in the documentation
telling where to obtain "gperf" or its use should be avoided. Maybe, a
pre-computed version of "keywords.c" could be shipped with the modules


P.S.: I did find "gperf" by now, but I assume other people will
stumble over the same problem.
