Installation instructions for mktemp ==================================== Mktemp uses a `configure' script to probe the capabilities and type of the system in question. Please read this document fully before configuring and building mktemp. You may also wish to read the file INSTALL.configure which explains more about the `configure' script. Simple mktemp installation ========================== For most systems and configurations it is possible simply to: 1) If you previously ran `configure' on a different host you will probably want to do a `make distclean' to remove the old `config.cache' file. Otherwise, `configure' will complain and refuse to run. Alternately, you can simply `rm config.cache'. 2) You should probably read the `Available configure options' section to see if there are any special options you may want or need. 2a) If you wish to build mktemp in the source directory, `cd' there and type `./configure'. 2b) If you wish to build mktemp in another directory and the make program you are using supports the `VPATH' variable (GNU make and most modern make programs do), `cd' the directory where you wish to bulid mktemp and type `/path/to/source/configure'. 3) Type `make' to compile mktemp. 4) Type `make install' (as root) to install mktemp and its manual page. You can also install various pieces the package via the install-binaries and install-man make targets. Available configure options =========================== This section describes flags accepted by the mktemp's `configure' script. Defaults are listed in brackets after the description. Configuration: --cache-file=FILE Cache test results in FILE --help Print the usage/help info --no-create Do not create output files --quiet, --silent Do not print `checking...' messages Directory and file names: --prefix=PREFIX Install architecture-independent files in PREFIX. [/usr/local] --exec-prefix=EPREFIX Install architecture-dependent files in EPREFIX. [same as prefix] --bindir=DIR Where the mktemp executable will be installed. [EPREFIX/bin] --mandir=DIR Install man page in DIR [PREFIX/man] --srcdir=DIR Find the sources in DIR [configure dir or ..] Special features/options: --with-CC=path Specifies path to C compiler you wish to use. --with-incpath Adds the specified directories to CPPFLAGS so configure and the compiler will look there for include files. Multiple directories may be specified as long as they are space separated. Eg: --with-incpath="/usr/local/include /opt/include" --with-libpath Adds the specified directories to LDFLAGS so configure and the compiler will look there for libraries. Multiple directories may be specified as with --with-incpath. --with-libraries Adds the specified libaries to LIBS so mktemp will link against them. If the library doesn't start with `-l' or end in `.a' or `.o' a `-l' will be prepended to it. Multiple libraries may be specified as long as they are space separated. --with-man When installing the manual page, install the one in man(7) format. --with-mdoc When installing the manual page, install the one in mdoc(7) format. --with-random=path Mktemp with use `path' as the path to a device from which to read random data. This defaults to /dev/urandom if it exists. --with-prngd=path|port For systems without a random device, the prngd and egd daemons can be used as an entropy source. The argument to this option should either be the path to a Unix domain socket or an IP port number. --with-libc Causes mktemp to use the mkstemp(3) and mkdtemp(3) (if it exists) in the system C library instead of mktemp's own private version. You should only enable this option if you know that the version of mkstemp(3) your OS ships with is a good one. NOTE: if your OS doesn't have a mkdtemp(3) function, a rather simplistic implementation with be used.
