0eff6b2000-07-15Fredrik Hübinette (Hubbe) The toplevel makefile (in this directory, not the src directory) has all the magic you need to build pike directly from CVS. Just type 'make'. You will need autoconf, automake, gnu m4, bison, a C compiler and the GMP library. You probably also want to use GNU make and libz. If that doesn't work, or you like making things difficult for yourself, try the Old instructions:
cf42f61996-10-04Fredrik Hübinette (Hubbe) After checking out the files from CVS you will notice that some files are missing compared to a regular distribution... To bootstrap your

cf42f61996-10-04Fredrik Hübinette (Hubbe)  1) cd src ; ./run_autoconfig This creates configure files and files. 2) Create a build directory an cd to it
3f68ff1996-10-08Henrik Grubbström (Grubba)  Do NOT build in the source dir, doing so will make it impossible
cf42f61996-10-04Fredrik Hübinette (Hubbe)  to do 'make export' later.
3f68ff1996-10-08Henrik Grubbström (Grubba) 3) Run the newly created configure file located in the src dir from the
cf42f61996-10-04Fredrik Hübinette (Hubbe)  build dir. Make sure to use an absolute path! This creates the Makefiles you need. If you don't use an absolute path the debug information will be all warped... 4) 'make depend' This updates all the files in the source dir to contain the correct dependencies

0f0a1d2000-01-27Fredrik Hübinette (Hubbe) 6) 'make'
cf42f61996-10-04Fredrik Hübinette (Hubbe)  This builds pike.
4148071996-10-05Fredrik Hübinette (Hubbe)  After doing this, DO NOT, commit the generated files. They are placed in .cvsignore files so you shouldn't have to bother with them. Doing 'make export' will create a tar file with all the needed files, but they should NOT be in the CVS archive! /Fredrik Hubinette
