5.4 Compile-time configuration via GNU autoconf
Before it can be compiled, zlibc must be configured using the GNU
./configure. In most circumstances, running
./configure without any parameters is enough. However, you may
customize zlibc using various options to
following options are supported:
- Prefix used for any directories used by zlibc. By default, this is
`/usr/local'. Zlibc is installed in `$prefix/lib', looks for
its system wide configuration file in `$prefix/etc'. Man pages are
installed in `$prefix/man', info pages in `$prefix/info' etc.
On Linux, if you use zlibc via `/etc/ld.so.preload', you should use
`/' as the prefix instead of the default `$prefix/lib'.
- Directory containing the system-wide configuration file
`zlibc.conf'. By default, this is derived from
- Disables run time configuration via environmental variables and via the
configuration files. This may be needed in hyper secure environments.
- Disables run time configuration via environmental variables
- Tells zlibc not to use the /proc filesystem to find out the commandline
of the programs for which it runs, even if a working /proc is detected.
- Tells zlibc to use the /proc filesystem to find out the commandline of
the programs for which it runs, even if no working /proc is detected.
- Uses extension as the filename extension of compressed files. By
- Allows to configure compressed filename extensions with at most
length character via runtime configuration. By default is 5.
- Uses directory to store the uncompressed files. By default is
- Defines how the program for uncompressing files should be invoked. This
command should read the compressed file from stdin, and output the
uncompressed data to stdout By default is
In addition to the above-listed options, the standard GNU autoconf
options apply. Type
