The INSTALL file contained several minor errors, typos and was generally
not up-to-date in regards to what ./configure provides today.  In
addition, several URL references have moved around to new homes.

This is just a backport of git master 6099ab67122429c0 adjusting for the
slight changes in release/2.4.  The contents is the same as git master,
as it is still valid for v2.4.
