Summary: obfsproxy install instructions page should mention packages, portsobfsproxy install instructions page should mention releases

The page should also tell users how to use the tarball if they need to build from source, now that there is a tarball.

I also attached a patch that adds instructions for building the release tarballs.

We might be able to make it easier for users to follow these instructions, by always symlinking the latest obfsproxy release to obfsproxy_current.tar.gz in /dist/obfsproxy and linking to that.

Do you really want to keep instructions for git? Developers will figure that out on their own (a link should be sufficient) while other users only need to know how to compile the official tarball.

Second, I would write "get into the source directory" or "switch to the source directory".

I'm closing this now as I don't think the patches reflect reality anymore.
