13.3 Compiling For Multiple Architectures
You can compile the package for more than one kind of computer at the
same time, by placing the object files for each architecture in their
own directory. To do this, you must use a version of
that supports the
VPATH variable, such as GNU
cd to the directory where you want the object files and
executables to go and run the
configure automatically checks for the source code in the
configure is in and in `..'.
If you have to use a
make that does not support the
VPATH variable, you have to compile the package for one
architecture at a time in the source code directory. After you have
installed the package for one architecture, use `make distclean'
before reconfiguring for another architecture.
