NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       xmkmf - create a Makefile from an Imakefile

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       xmkmf [-a] [topdir[curdir]]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The  xmkmf  command is the normal way to create a Makefile
       from an Imakefile shipped with third-party software.

       When invoked with no arguments in a  directory  containing
       an  Imakefile,  the  imake  program  is run with arguments
       appropriate for your system (configured into xmkmf when  X
       was built) and generates a Makefile.

       When invoked with the -a option, xmkmf builds the Makefile
       in the current directory, and then automatically  executes
       "make Makefiles" (in case there are subdirectories), "make
       includes", and "make depend" for you. This is  the  normal
       way to configure software that is outside the X Consortium
       build tree.

       If working inside the X Consortium  build  tree  (unlikely
       unless  you  are an X developer, and even then this option
       is never really used), the topdir argument should be specified
  as the relative pathname from the current directory
       to the top of the build tree.  Optionally, curdir  may  be
       specified as a relative pathname from the top of the build
       tree to the current directory.  It is necessary to  supply
       curdir if the current directory has subdirectories, or the
       Makefile will not be able to build the subdirectories.  If
       a  topdir  is given, xmkmf assumes nothing is installed on
       your system and looks for files in the build tree  instead
       of using the installed versions.
