Installing rtorrent with xmlrpc-c

To run rtorrent with wtorrent you need xmlrpc support, this is a quick guide to installing this in ubuntu (10.10)

First install dependencies.
sudo apt-get install libncurses5-dev libsigc++-2.0-dev libcurl4-openssl-dev build-essential libxmlrpc-c3-dev

Next up: rtorrent libs.
wget http://libtorrent.rakshasa.no/downloads/libtorrent-0.12.6.tar.gz
sudo tar xvf libtorrent-0.12.6.tar.gz
cd libtorrent-0.12.6

sudo ./configure
sudo make
sudo make install

..and rtorrent itself.
