Bug Description

Suggested changes for:

http://www.percona.com/doc/percona-xtrabackup/installation/compiling_xtrabackup.html

1. Add "zlib-devel" to the list of packages, otherwise you get a compile error (missing zlib.h - even though it's there in PS 5.5, the OS one is used)
2. Change "ncurses5-devel" to "ncurses-devel" - at least that is what it named on FC17 and Centos6 (with no ncurses5-devel available)
3. Change this:
----
  After this you’ll need to copy innobackupex and the corresponding xtrabackup binary to some directory listed in the PATH environment variable, e.g. /usr/bin.
----
To:
----
  After this you’ll need to copy innobackupex (in the root folder used to retrieve XtraBackup) and the corresponding xtrabackup binary (in the src folder) to some directory listed in the PATH environment variable, e.g. /usr/bin.
----
(I realize there is already a reference to src in the paragraph above, but not to root.)

Thanks!
