I attempted to create a patch to update to 27r2 but, sadly, I discovered too
many problems with 27r2.

It has the 'install' instruction now, but here is the list of problems that
I've just sent to the upstream author Brandan McKay:
> 1. The header file schreier.h isn't installed. The library nautyW1.a has functions declared there which are unusable without this header installed.
> 2. The header nautycliquer.h isn't installed. Same situation, functions declared there are defined in static libraries.
> 3. The header traces.h isn't installed. Same situation.
> 4. It's better to install all Nauty headers into a dedicated subdirectory $prefix/include/nauty. This way $prefix/include, which is typically already very crowded, doesn't get mode crowded than it needs to be.
> 5. Static libraries that you install don't have the "lib" prefix. Virtually all static libraries in $prefix/lib have the "lib" prefix.
> 6. The 'install' target doesn't respect the DESTDIR variable. DESTDIR is a GNU standard (see here https://www.gnu.org/prep/standards/html_node/DESTDIR.html) Every install instruction should install under $DESTDIR$PREFIX/... to be staging-friendly.
> Are multiple libraries (lib/nauty.a lib/nauty1.a lib/nautyL.a lib/nautyL1.a lib/nautyW.a lib/nautyW1.a) necessary? The documentation https://pallini.di.uniroma1.it/Guide.html doesn't mention them.

I hope that he would solve these issues and would make another release.
