"Elsewhere" is "a collection of mails, mostly by Fredrik, on this and other lists, and the configure script". Not very helpful, I know. :-)
My intention was to summarize this into the README, but I was sidetracked. :-( It would probably had been better to write "Coming soon!" -- I'll fix that tomorrow, and I'll try to finish the part of the document describing how to work with non-forest builds as soon as possible.
