I second Keith's opinion: this should be the purpose of the building
guide itself.

I mentioned "sub-chapters" but I understand you would better like to
have "sub-pages"? That sounds nice...

If we wanted to make different sub-pages, I would just get rid of
Step_by_step [1] and substitute it with:
 - Step_by_step_Linux
 - Step_by_step_macOS
 - Step_by_step_Windows

Then, if we add lots of Linux distros, they will not bother Windows
and Mac users.

The new pages would be directly linked by the building guide. I don't
think it would be useful to keep Step_by_step [1] just as an index of
the other pages.

Did I understand your proposal correctly, Marcus?
