README says to run ./bootstrap.
You might want to have a separate README-hacking or README-dev for people
working from checked-out sources.  Then README will be relevant to a
wider audience.  Eventually, there will be a distributed source tarball
that will already include all of the pieces generated by ./bootstrap.
Wouldn't want to confuse poor users, making them think they need all of
these esoteric tools just to compile from the tarball.

Also, that build-requirements list is mostly for developers.
There would be a much reduced set for non-developers starting
from a tarball.

Here's a small patch for the bootstrap script,
  - stop if any command fails
  - don't run ./configure
