2.2.4 Running configure

Run sh configure options (in the top-level directory, the one containing `kpathsea/'), possibly using a shell other than sh (see section 2.2.4.1 configure shells).

configure adapts the source distribution to the present system via #define's in `*/c-auto.h', which are created from the corresponding `c-auto.in'. It also creates a `Makefile' from the corresponding `Makefile.in', doing `@var@' and `ac_include' substitutions).

configure is the best place to control the configuration, compilation, and installed location of the software, either via command-line options, or by setting environment variables before invoking it. For example, you can disable mktexpk by default with the option `--disable-mktexpk'. See section 2.2.4.2 configure options.
