1. If “configure” is missing from the top level directory, you probably retrieved this code directly from the repository. Run “./bootstrap”.

    If your versions of the autotools are not new enough to run this script, download and official tarball in which the configure script is already provided.

  2. Run “./configure”

    See “./configure –help” for configuration options.

  3. Run “make”

  4. Optionally, run “make install”. The installation prefix can be changed as an option to the “configure” script.
