RT 5.0.6 Documentation


Go to latest version →
'configure' configures RT rt-5.0.6 to adapt to many kinds of systems.

Usage: ./configure [OPTION]... [VAR=VALUE]...

To assign environment variables (e.g., CC, CFLAGS...), specify them as
VAR=VALUE.  See below for descriptions of some of the useful variables.

Defaults for the options are specified in brackets.

  -h, --help              display this help and exit
      --help=short        display options specific to this package
      --help=recursive    display the short help of all the included packages
  -V, --version           display version information and exit
  -q, --quiet, --silent   do not print 'checking ...' messages
      --cache-file=FILE   cache test results in FILE [disabled]
  -C, --config-cache      alias for '--cache-file=config.cache'
  -n, --no-create         do not create output files
      --srcdir=DIR        find the sources in DIR [configure dir or '..']

Installation directories:
  --prefix=PREFIX         install architecture-independent files in PREFIX
  --exec-prefix=EPREFIX   install architecture-dependent files in EPREFIX

By default, 'make install' will install all the files in
'/opt/rt5/bin', '/opt/rt5/lib' etc.  You can specify
an installation prefix other than '/opt/rt5' using '--prefix',
for instance '--prefix=$HOME'.

For better control, use the options below.

  --bindir=DIR            user executables [EPREFIX/bin]

it to find libraries and programs with nonstandard names/locations.
