The steps in order to compile this package are:
1. `cd' to the directory containing the package's source code and type `./configure' to configure the package for your system. If you're using `csh' on an old version of System V, you might need to type `sh ./configure' instead to prevent `csh' from trying to execute `configure' itself.
Running `configure' takes awhile. While running, it prints some messages telling which features it is checking for.
The `configure' script is generated from `configure.in' by GNU's autoconf and it attempts to guess correct values for various system-dependent variables used during compilation. It also creates the Makefiles needed to compile the package and a `.h' file containing system-dependent definitions;
2. Type `make' to compile the package;
3. Type `make install' to install the package. This operation should be done logged on as root;
4. You can remove the object files from the source directory by typing `make clean'. To also remove the files that `configure' created (so you can compile the package for a different kind of system), type `make distclean';
5. Type `make uninstall' to remove the package from the destination directories.
By default, `make install' will install the package's binaries in `/usr/bin'. You can specify an installation prefix other than `/usr' by giving `configure' the option `--prefix=PATH'.
Other features and options
--enable-debug to enable generation of debugging informations; for other options, type `./configure --help'.
