Additional platforms should be trivial to add.

    88The [wiki:EncapManEncapProfile encap_profile(5)]s use [wiki:EncapManMkencap mkencap(1)] to compile to binary [ftp://ftp.encap.org/pub/encap/specification/encap2.1-specification.txt encap packages]. 
     
    1414A complete client install methodology, which lets you install, with one command, a new bcfg2 client configured for your environment, is included. All of the client encap packages and a local site configuration encap package are bundled into a single executable file with a setup script with [http://www.megastep.org/makeself/ makeself]. Installing a new client becomes a matter of just executing that file on the target machine.

     16It is recommended to compile from source, however there are binary encaps for some platforms available from http://www.dclark.us/encaps/bcfg2/

    2325== Current State == 
    24  * Do not use the encap code in bcfg2 0.8.2; it doesn't work. Use 0.8.3 or SVN. 
    25  * EncapHowto needs to be written; this should be done in time for the 0.8.4 release. 
     26 * Use the latest encap code from SVN. The code in the 0.8.5 release should also be good. 
     27 * EncapHowto needs to be written; this should be done in time for the 0.8.6 release. 
    2628 * See the [http://trac.mcs.anl.gov/projects/bcfg2/browser/trunk/bcfg2/encap/TODO TODO list]
