   10 Basic Installation
   11 ==================
   13    Briefly, the shell commands `./configure; make; make install' should
   14 configure, build, and install this package.  The following
   15 more-detailed instructions are generic; see the `README' file for
   16 instructions specific to this package.
   18    The `configure' shell script attempts to guess correct values for
   19 various system-dependent variables used during compilation.  It uses
   20 those values to create a `Makefile' in each directory of the package.
   21 It may also create one or more `.h' files containing system-dependent
   22 definitions.  Finally, it creates a shell script `config.status' that
   23 you can run in the future to recreate the current configuration, and a
   24 file `config.log' containing compiler output (useful mainly for
   25 debugging `configure').
   27    It can also use an optional file (typically called `config.cache'
   28 and enabled with `--cache-file=config.cache' or simply `-C') that saves
   29 the results of its tests to speed up reconfiguring.  Caching is
   30 disabled by default to prevent problems with accidental use of stale
   31 cache files.
   33    If you need to do unusual things to compile the package, please try
   34 to figure out how `configure' could check whether to do them, and mail
   35 diffs or instructions to the address given in the `README' so they can
   36 be considered for the next release.  If you are using the cache, and at
   37 some point `config.cache' contains results you don't want to keep, you
   38 may remove or edit it.
   40    The file `configure.ac' (or `configure.in') is used to create
   41 `configure' by a program called `autoconf'.  You need `configure.ac' if
   42 you want to change it or regenerate `configure' using a newer version
   43 of `autoconf'.
   45 The simplest way to compile this package is:
   47   1. `cd' to the directory containing the package's source code and type
   48      `./configure' to configure the package for your system.
   50      Running `configure' might take a while.  While running, it prints
   51      some messages telling which features it is checking for.
   53   2. Type `make' to compile the package.
   55   3. Optionally, type `make check' to run any self-tests that come with
   56      the package.
   58   4. Type `make install' to install the programs and any data files and
   59      documentation.
   61   5. You can remove the program binaries and object files from the
   62      source code directory by typing `make clean'.  To also remove the
   63      files that `configure' created (so you can compile the package for
   64      a different kind of computer), type `make distclean'.  There is
   65      also a `make maintainer-clean' target, but that is intended mainly
   66      for the package's developers.  If you use it, you may have to get
   67      all sorts of other programs in order to regenerate files that came
   68      with the distribution.
   70   6. Often, you can also type `make uninstall' to remove the installed
   71      files again.
   73 Compilers and Options
   74 =====================
   76    Some systems require unusual options for compilation or linking that
   77 the `configure' script does not know about.  Run `./configure --help'
   78 for details on some of the pertinent environment variables.
   80    You can give `configure' initial values for configuration parameters
   81 by setting variables in the command line or in the environment.  Here
   82 is an example:
   84      ./configure CC=c99 CFLAGS=-g LIBS=-lposix
   86    *Note Defining Variables::, for more details.
   88 Compiling For Multiple Architectures
   89 ====================================
   91    You can compile the package for more than one kind of computer at the
   92 same time, by placing the object files for each architecture in their
   93 own directory.  To do this, you can use GNU `make'.  `cd' to the
   94 directory where you want the object files and executables to go and run
   95 the `configure' script.  `configure' automatically checks for the
   96 source code in the directory that `configure' is in and in `..'.
   98    With a non-GNU `make', it is safer to compile the package for one
   99 architecture at a time in the source code directory.  After you have
  100 installed the package for one architecture, use `make distclean' before
  101 reconfiguring for another architecture.
  103    On MacOS X 10.5 and later systems, you can create libraries and
  104 executables that work on multiple system types--known as "fat" or
  105 "universal" binaries--by specifying multiple `-arch' options to the
  106 compiler but only a single `-arch' option to the preprocessor.  Like
  107 this:
  109      ./configure CC="gcc -arch i386 -arch x86_64 -arch ppc -arch ppc64" \
  110                  CXX="g++ -arch i386 -arch x86_64 -arch ppc -arch ppc64" \
  111                  CPP="gcc -E" CXXCPP="g++ -E"
  113    This is not guaranteed to produce working output in all cases, you
  114 may have to build one architecture at a time and combine the results
  115 using the `lipo' tool if you have problems.
  117 Installation Names
  118 ==================
  120    By default, `make install' installs the package's commands under
  121 `/usr/local/bin', include files under `/usr/local/include', etc.  You
  122 can specify an installation prefix other than `/usr/local' by giving
  123 `configure' the option `--prefix=PREFIX'.
  125    You can specify separate installation prefixes for
  126 architecture-specific files and architecture-independent files.  If you
  127 pass the option `--exec-prefix=PREFIX' to `configure', the package uses
  128 PREFIX as the prefix for installing programs and libraries.
  129 Documentation and other data files still use the regular prefix.
  131    In addition, if you use an unusual directory layout you can give
  132 options like `--bindir=DIR' to specify different values for particular
  133 kinds of files.  Run `configure --help' for a list of the directories
  134 you can set and what kinds of files go in them.
  136    If the package supports it, you can cause programs to be installed
  137 with an extra prefix or suffix on their names by giving `configure' the
  138 option `--program-prefix=PREFIX' or `--program-suffix=SUFFIX'.
  140 Optional Features
  141 =================
  143    Some packages pay attention to `--enable-FEATURE' options to
  144 `configure', where FEATURE indicates an optional part of the package.
  145 They may also pay attention to `--with-PACKAGE' options, where PACKAGE
  146 is something like `gnu-as' or `x' (for the X Window System).  The
  147 `README' should mention any `--enable-' and `--with-' options that the
  148 package recognizes.
  150    For packages that use the X Window System, `configure' can usually
  151 find the X include and library files automatically, but if it doesn't,
  152 you can use the `configure' options `--x-includes=DIR' and
  153 `--x-libraries=DIR' to specify their locations.
  155 Particular systems
  156 ==================
  158    On HP-UX, the default C compiler is not ANSI C compatible.  If GNU
  159 CC is not installed, it is recommended to use the following options in
  160 order to use an ANSI C compiler:
  162      ./configure CC="cc -Ae"
  164 and if that doesn't work, install pre-built binaries of GCC for HP-UX.
  166    On OSF/1 a.k.a. Tru64, some versions of the default C compiler cannot
  167 parse its `<wchar.h>' header file.  The option `-nodtk' can be used as
  168 a workaround.  If GNU CC is not installed, it is therefore recommended
  169 to try
  171      ./configure CC="cc"
  173 and if that doesn't work, try
  175      ./configure CC="cc -nodtk"
  177 Specifying the System Type
  178 ==========================
  180    There may be some features `configure' cannot figure out
  181 automatically, but needs to determine by the type of machine the package
  182 will run on.  Usually, assuming the package is built to be run on the
  183 _same_ architectures, `configure' can figure that out, but if it prints
  184 a message saying it cannot guess the machine type, give it the
  185 `--build=TYPE' option.  TYPE can either be a short name for the system
  186 type, such as `sun4', or a canonical name which has the form:
  190 where SYSTEM can have one of these forms:
  192      OS KERNEL-OS
  194    See the file `config.sub' for the possible values of each field.  If
  195 `config.sub' isn't included in this package, then this package doesn't
  196 need to know the machine type.
  198    If you are _building_ compiler tools for cross-compiling, you should
  199 use the option `--target=TYPE' to select the type of system they will
  200 produce code for.
  202    If you want to _use_ a cross compiler, that generates code for a
  203 platform different from the build platform, you should specify the
  204 "host" platform (i.e., that on which the generated programs will
  205 eventually be run) with `--host=TYPE'.
  207 Sharing Defaults
  208 ================
  210    If you want to set default values for `configure' scripts to share,
  211 you can create a site shell script called `config.site' that gives
  212 default values for variables like `CC', `cache_file', and `prefix'.
  213 `configure' looks for `PREFIX/share/config.site' if it exists, then
  214 `PREFIX/etc/config.site' if it exists.  Or, you can set the
  215 `CONFIG_SITE' environment variable to the location of the site script.
  216 A warning: not all `configure' scripts look for a site script.
  218 Defining Variables
  219 ==================
  221    Variables not defined in a site shell script can be set in the
  222 environment passed to `configure'.  However, some packages may run
  223 configure again during the build, and the customized values of these
  224 variables may be lost.  In order to avoid this problem, you should set
  225 them in the `configure' command line, using `VAR=value'.  For example:
  227      ./configure CC=/usr/local2/bin/gcc
  229 causes the specified `gcc' to be used as the C compiler (unless it is
  230 overridden in the site shell script).
  232 Unfortunately, this technique does not work for `CONFIG_SHELL' due to
  233 an Autoconf bug.  Until the bug is fixed you can use this workaround:
  235      CONFIG_SHELL=/bin/bash /bin/bash ./configure CONFIG_SHELL=/bin/bash
  237 `configure' Invocation
  238 ======================
  240    `configure' recognizes the following options to control how it
  241 operates.
  243 `--help'
  244 `-h'
  245      Print a summary of all of the options to `configure', and exit.
  247 `--help=short'
  248 `--help=recursive'
  249      Print a summary of the options unique to this package's
  250      `configure', and exit.  The `short' variant lists options used
  251      only in the top level, while the `recursive' variant lists options
  252      also present in any nested packages.
  254 `--version'
  255 `-V'
  256      Print the version of Autoconf used to generate the `configure'
  257      script, and exit.
  259 `--cache-file=FILE'
  260      Enable the cache: use and save the results of the tests in FILE,
  261      traditionally `config.cache'.  FILE defaults to `/dev/null' to
  262      disable caching.
  264 `--config-cache'
  265 `-C'
  266      Alias for `--cache-file=config.cache'.
  268 `--quiet'
  269 `--silent'
  270 `-q'
  271      Do not print messages saying which checks are being made.  To
  272      suppress all normal output, redirect it to `/dev/null' (any error
  273      messages will still be shown).
  275 `--srcdir=DIR'
  276      Look for the package's source code in directory DIR.  Usually
  277      `configure' can determine that directory automatically.
  279 `--prefix=DIR'
  280      Use DIR as the installation prefix.  *Note Installation Names::
  281      for more details, including other options available for fine-tuning
  282      the installation locations.
  284 `--no-create'
  285 `-n'
  286      Run the configure checks, but stop before creating any output
  287      files.
  289 `configure' also accepts some other, not widely useful, options.  Run
  290 `configure --help' for more details.
