13.9 configure Invocation

configure recognizes the following options to control how it operates.

`--help'
`-h'
Print a summary of the options to configure, and exit.

`--version'
`-V'
Print the version of Autoconf used to generate the configure script, and exit.

`--cache-file=file'
Enable the cache: use and save the results of the tests in file, traditionally `config.cache'. file defaults to `/dev/null' to disable caching.

`--config-cache'
`-C'
Alias for `--cache-file=config.cache'.

`--quiet'
`--silent'
`-q'
Do not print messages saying which checks are being made. To suppress all normal output, redirect it to `/dev/null' (any error messages will still be shown).

`--srcdir=dir'
Look for the package's source code in directory dir. Usually configure can determine that directory automatically.

configure also accepts some other, not widely useful, options. Run `configure --help' for more details.
