Mostly straightforward. An outline of the local installs is given below. Requires user nws and group nws.

./configure --prefix=/usr/local/nws-2.12.1
make all
sudo make install
cd /usr/local
sudo ln nws-2.12.1 nws
# unpack the daemon-0.6.3 package
./config
make
cp daemon /usr/local/nws/bin
sudo mkdir /var/nwsmemory
sudo chown nws.nws /var/nwsmemory
# back in the nws package
sudo cp contrib/nws-* /etc/init.d/
# configure the init scripts accordingly
# note: only nws-sensor is enabled on lead and other machines.  only chinkapin
#  runs as the name and memory server
sudo chkconfig --add nws-memory
sudo chkconfig --add nws-nameserver
sudo chkconfig --add nws-sensor
