0001 Basic Installation 0002 ================== 0003 0004 These are generic installation instructions. 0005 0006 The `configure' shell script attempts to guess correct values for 0007 various system-dependent variables used during compilation. It uses 0008 those values to create a `Makefile' in each directory of the package. 0009 It may also create one or more `.h' files containing system-dependent 0010 definitions. Finally, it creates a shell script `config.status' that 0011 you can run in the future to recreate the current configuration, a file 0012 `config.cache' that saves the results of its tests to speed up 0013 reconfiguring, and a file `config.log' containing compiler output 0014 (useful mainly for debugging `configure'). 0015 0016 If you need to do unusual things to compile the package, please try 0017 to figure out how `configure' could check whether to do them, and mail 0018 diffs or instructions to the address given in the `README' so they can 0019 be considered for the next release. If at some point `config.cache' 0020 contains results you don't want to keep, you may remove or edit it. 0021 0022 The file `configure.in' is used to create `configure' by a program 0023 called `autoconf'. You only need `configure.in' if you want to change 0024 it or regenerate `configure' using a newer version of `autoconf'. 0025 0026 The simplest way to compile this package is: 0027 0028 1. `cd' to the directory containing the package's source code and type 0029 `./configure' to configure the package for your system. If you're 0030 using `csh' on an old version of System V, you might need to type 0031 `sh ./configure' instead to prevent `csh' from trying to execute 0032 `configure' itself. 0033 0034 Running `configure' takes a while. While running, it prints some 0035 messages telling which features it is checking for. 0036 0037 2. Type `make' to compile the package. 0038 0039 3. Type `make install' to install the programs and any data files and 0040 documentation. 0041 0042 4. You can remove the program binaries and object files from the 0043 source code directory by typing `make clean'. 0044 0045 Compilers and Options 0046 ===================== 0047 0048 Some systems require unusual options for compilation or linking that 0049 the `configure' script does not know about. You can give `configure' 0050 initial values for variables by setting them in the environment. Using 0051 a Bourne-compatible shell, you can do that on the command line like 0052 this: 0053 CC=c89 CFLAGS=-O2 LIBS=-lposix ./configure 0054 0055 Or on systems that have the `env' program, you can do it like this: 0056 env CPPFLAGS=-I/usr/local/include LDFLAGS=-s ./configure 0057 0058 Compiling For Multiple Architectures 0059 ==================================== 0060 0061 You can compile the package for more than one kind of computer at the 0062 same time, by placing the object files for each architecture in their 0063 own directory. To do this, you must use a version of `make' that 0064 supports the `VPATH' variable, such as GNU `make'. `cd' to the 0065 directory where you want the object files and executables to go and run 0066 the `configure' script. `configure' automatically checks for the 0067 source code in the directory that `configure' is in and in `..'. 0068 0069 If you have to use a `make' that does not supports the `VPATH' 0070 variable, you have to compile the package for one architecture at a time 0071 in the source code directory. After you have installed the package for 0072 one architecture, use `make distclean' before reconfiguring for another 0073 architecture. 0074 0075 Installation Names 0076 ================== 0077 0078 By default, `make install' will install the package's files in 0079 `/usr/local/bin', `/usr/local/man', etc. You can specify an 0080 installation prefix other than `/usr/local' by giving `configure' the 0081 option `--prefix=PATH'. 0082 0083 You can specify separate installation prefixes for 0084 architecture-specific files and architecture-independent files. If you 0085 give `configure' the option `--exec-prefix=PATH', the package will use 0086 PATH as the prefix for installing programs and libraries. 0087 Documentation and other data files will still use the regular prefix. 0088 0089 If the package supports it, you can cause programs to be installed 0090 with an extra prefix or suffix on their names by giving `configure' the 0091 option `--program-prefix=PREFIX' or `--program-suffix=SUFFIX'. 0092 0093 Optional Features 0094 ================= 0095 0096 Some packages pay attention to `--enable-FEATURE' options to 0097 `configure', where FEATURE indicates an optional part of the package. 0098 They may also pay attention to `--with-PACKAGE' options, where PACKAGE 0099 is something like `gnu-as' or `x' (for the X Window System). The 0100 `README' should mention any `--enable-' and `--with-' options that the 0101 package recognizes. 0102 0103 For packages that use the X Window System, `configure' can usually 0104 find the X include and library files automatically, but if it doesn't, 0105 you can use the `configure' options `--x-includes=DIR' and 0106 `--x-libraries=DIR' to specify their locations. 0107 0108 Specifying the System Type 0109 ========================== 0110 0111 There may be some features `configure' can not figure out 0112 automatically, but needs to determine by the type of host the package 0113 will run on. Usually `configure' can figure that out, but if it prints 0114 a message saying it can not guess the host type, give it the 0115 `--host=TYPE' option. TYPE can either be a short name for the system 0116 type, such as `sun4', or a canonical name with three fields: 0117 CPU-COMPANY-SYSTEM 0118 0119 See the file `config.sub' for the possible values of each field. If 0120 `config.sub' isn't included in this package, then this package doesn't 0121 need to know the host type. 0122 0123 If you are building compiler tools for cross-compiling, you can also 0124 use the `--target=TYPE' option to select the type of system they will 0125 produce code for and the `--build=TYPE' option to select the type of 0126 system on which you are compiling the package. 0127 0128 Sharing Defaults 0129 ================ 0130 0131 If you want to set default values for `configure' scripts to share, 0132 you can create a site shell script called `config.site' that gives 0133 default values for variables like `CC', `cache_file', and `prefix'. 0134 `configure' looks for `PREFIX/share/config.site' if it exists, then 0135 `PREFIX/etc/config.site' if it exists. Or, you can set the 0136 `CONFIG_SITE' environment variable to the location of the site script. 0137 A warning: not all `configure' scripts look for a site script. 0138 0139 Operation Controls 0140 ================== 0141 0142 `configure' recognizes the following options to control how it 0143 operates. 0144 0145 `--cache-file=FILE' 0146 Use and save the results of the tests in FILE instead of 0147 `./config.cache'. Set FILE to `/dev/null' to disable caching, for 0148 debugging `configure'. 0149 0150 `--help' 0151 Print a summary of the options to `configure', and exit. 0152 0153 `--quiet' 0154 `--silent' 0155 `-q' 0156 Do not print messages saying which checks are being made. 0157 0158 `--srcdir=DIR' 0159 Look for the package's source code in directory DIR. Usually 0160 `configure' can determine that directory automatically. 0161 0162 `--version' 0163 Print the version of Autoconf used to generate the `configure' 0164 script, and exit. 0165 0166 `configure' also accepts some other, not widely useful, options. 0167
