Cross-platform Factor Install Script

Recently, I wrote an installer/updater bash script that downloads the git repository, compiles, and bootstraps Factor. On Linux, it compiles Factor for console-only if any of the libraries required for the graphical interface are missing (freetype, GL, GLU, X11).

To install Factor to a directory: ./ install
To update your Factor repository: ./misc/ update

The script source code is available for browsing or for download.

Tested on Windows XP/Vista in Cygwin, Debian and Ubuntu Linux, and Mac OS X.

Please send bug reports and improvements. Thanks!
