|If you are building from CVS, run the script
|first, to make sure that you have all the necessary maintainer tools
|are installed and to build the actual configuration files. Then run
|followed by the usual make.
|If autogen.sh complains about insufficient versions of the required
|tools, or the tools are not installed, you may use environment
|variables to override the default tool names:
| AUTOMAKE_SUFFIX is used as a suffix for all tools from the automake
| package. For example
| AUTOMAKE_SUFFIX="-1.7" ./autogen.sh
| uses "automake-1.7" and "aclocal-1.7.
| AUTOMAKE_PREFIX is used as a prefix for all tools from the automake
| page and may be combined with AUTOMAKE_SUFFIX. e.g.:
| AUTOMAKE_PREFIX=/usr/foo/bin ./autogen.sh
| uses "automake" and "aclocal" in the /usr/foo/bin
| AUTOCONF_SUFFIX is used as a suffix for all tools from the automake
| AUTOCONF_PREFIX is used as a prefix for all tools from the automake
| GETTEXT_SUFFIX is used as a suffix for all tools from the gettext
| GETTEXT_PREFIX is used as a prefix for all tools from the gettext
|It is also possible to use the variable name AUTOMAKE, AUTOCONF,
|ACLOCAL, AUTOHEADER, GETTEXT and MSGMERGE to directly specify the name
|of the programs to run. It is however better to use the suffix and
|prefix forms as described above because that does not require
|knowledge about the actual tools used by autgen.sh.
|Please don't use autopoint, libtoolize or autoreconf unless you are
|the current maintainer and want to update the standard configuration
|files. All those files should be in the CVS and only updated manually
|if the maintainer decides that newer versions are required. The
|maintainer should also make sure that the required version of automake
|et al. are properly indicated at the top of configure.ac and take care
|to copy the files and not merely use symlinks.
