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.
