Build with Alkemist:Code

Now that your system contains the files necessary for Alkemist:Code to run, prepend your build commands (make, gcc, g++, etc) with lfr-helper to automatically integrate Alkemist:Code into your existing build process.

The command shown will build the given hello_world.c into an Alkemist:Code-protected program called hello_world, but you can add lfr-helper to any build command, simple or complex.
