B.2.2 Additional Configuration Options

There are several additional options you may use on the configure command line when compiling gawk from scratch, including:

--enable-portals
Treat pathnames that begin with `/p' as BSD portal files when doing two-way I/O with the `|&' operator (see section Using gawk with BSD Portals).

--with-included-gettext
Use the version of the gettext library that comes with gawk. This option should be used on systems that do not use version 2 (or later) of the GNU C library. All known modern GNU/Linux systems use Glibc 2. Use this option on any other system.

--disable-nls
Disable all message-translation facilities. This is usually not desirable, but it may bring you some slight performance improvement. You should also use this option if `--with-included-gettext' doesn't work on your system.
