B.5 ‘configure’ Options

Here is a summary of the ‘configure’ options and arguments that are most often useful for building No value for GDBN. ‘configure’ also has several other options not listed here. See ( Configure Does, for a full explanation of ‘configure’.

configure [--help]
          [--norecursion] [--rm]

You may introduce options with a single ‘-’ rather than ‘--’ if you prefer; but you may abbreviate option names if you use ‘--’.


Display a quick summary of how to invoke ‘configure’.


Configure the source to install programs and files under directory ‘dir’.


Configure the source to install programs under directory ‘dir’.


Warning: using this option requires GNU make, or another make that implements the VPATH feature.
Use this option to make configurations in directories separate from the No value for GDBN source directories. Among other things, you can use this to build (or maintain) several configurations simultaneously, in separate directories. ‘configure’ writes configuration-specific files in the current directory, but arranges for them to use the source in the directory dirname. ‘configure’ creates directories under the working directory in parallel to the source directories below dirname.


Configure only the directory level where ‘configure’ is executed; do not propagate configuration to subdirectories.


Configure No value for GDBN for cross-debugging programs running on the specified target. Without this option, No value for GDBN is configured to debug programs that run on the same machine (host) as No value for GDBN itself.

There is no convenient way to generate a list of all available targets.


Configure No value for GDBN to run on the specified host.

There is no convenient way to generate a list of all available hosts.

There are many other options available as well, but they are generally needed for special purposes only.
