Glad you found this file :)
The toplevel makefile (in this directory, not the src directory)
has all the magic you need to build pike directly from CVS. Just
You will need autoconf, automake, gnu m4, bison, a C compiler
and the GMP library. You probably also want to use GNU make and
If that doesn't work, or you like making things difficult for yourself,
try the Old instructions:
After checking out the files from CVS you will notice that some files are missing compared to a regular distribution... To bootstrap your Pike development environment you must do the following steps: 1) cd src ; ./run_autoconfig This creates configure files and Makefile.in 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.
