To bootstrap your Pike development environment you must ddo the following steps: 1) cd src ; ./run_autoconfig This creates configure files and files. 2) Create a build directory an cd to it Do not build in the source dir, doing so will make it impossible to do 'make export' later. 3) run the newly created configure file located in the src dir from the 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 5) run configure again This updates your Makefiles to include the dependencies. The config.cache file will make this a lot faster. 6) If needed, modify your Makefile 7) 'make' This builds pike.

Doing 'make export' will create a tar file with all the needed files, but they should NOT be in the CVS archive! /Fredrik Hubinette
