MAKING AND INSTALLING THE DISTRIBUTION
This is a quick guide. For details, see the INSTALL file.
You should be able to make and install the distribution with a
default configuration by typing the following commands:
% ./configure --help
This will list the available options.
The configure script will also use your environmental
variables for determining compiler/linker options.
These environment variables are used:
CC C compiler (cc, ecgs)
CFLAGS C Flags (-ansi)
CPPFLAGS CPP Flags (-I -D)
LDFLAGS LDFLAGS (-L -l)
% [env settings] ./configure [options]
this will configure the build system
% ./configure
autoconf OpenLDAP for current platform
% make depend
this will create dependency information
