is a program used to prepare souce code to be built. It does this by
generating Makefiles and .gdbinit files, creating symlinks, digging
directories, and some other miscellaneous file editting.
accepts the following options:
sets the root directory for host dependent files to
The default location is the same as
tells configure that the GNU assembler is available on this machine
even if it is not ordinarily.
displays a brief summary of the calling convention.
asks configure to prepare the source to be compiled in an environment
This option is very confusing and is best ignored. FIXME: I don't
think it should even be documented.
Notifies configure that all of the specified hosts have
no floating point
asks that only the current directory be configured. Normally
configure recurs on subdirectories.
sets the default location in which to install files to dir. The
default is "/usr/local".
used internally by configure to supress status messages on
asks configure to remove a configuration rather than creating one.
asks configure to use any site specific Makefile fragments for s when
tells configure to find the source in srcdir.
Requests that the sources be configured to target the t machine. If
no targets are specified explicitly, the target is assumed to be the
same as the host.
Sets the directory in which configure creates temporary files to
Asks that configure print status lines for each directory configured.
Normally, only the status lines for the current directory are printed.
Tells configure that MIT style X11 header files and libraries are
available on this machine, even if they are not normally available.
