Hmm, I'm not convinced.  95% of what was put into 15.8 is really
platform-specific *build* instructions.  Merging configuration
information into that doesn't seem appropriate.

In general I think chapter 15 is about getting a correct set of
binaries, while chapter 17 deals with system configuration issues.
These should be kept separate, because in the common case of using
a prepackaged build, chapter 15 is of no interest but 17 still is.

It's quite likely that some of the stuff extracted from the old platform
FAQs really belongs in 17.
