The Tcsh package contains "an enhanced but completely compatible version of the Berkeley Unix C shell (csh)". This is useful as an alternative shell for those who prefer C syntax to that of the bash shell, and also because some programs require the C shell in order to install.

Install Tcsh by running the following commands:
./configure --prefix=/usr && make
Now, as the root user:
make install && make install.man && ln -sf /usr/bin/tcsh /bin/csh
ln -sf /usr/bin/tcsh /bin/csh: The FHS states that if there is a C shell installed, there should be a symlink from /bin/csh to it. This creates that symlink.
