      Description

      The current build instructions assume older versions of Fedora for build C++.

      INSTALL file states:
      <INSTALL>
      UUID problems:
      In some later Linux releases (such as Fedora 12), the uuid/uuid.h file has been
      moved from e2fsprogs-devel into libuuid-devel. If you are using a newer Linux
      release and run into a problem during configure in which uuid.h cannot be found,
      look for and install the libuuid-devel package.
      <\INSTALL>

      We should flip this so that the default is to install libuuid-devel and the the instructions explain that for older releases of linux you need to install e2fsprogs-devel.

      UUID problems:
      In some earlier Linux releases (such as Fedora 11), the uuid/uuid.h file is loccated
      in e2fsprogs-devel instead of libuuid-devel. If you are using an older Linux
      release and run into a problem during configure in which uuid.h cannot be found,
      look for and install the e2fsprogs-devel package.
