-Building on UNIX
+The easiest way to build this package is with the bpkg package manager:
-The following build instructions are for the Linux/UNIX/Mac OS X
-operating systems as well as for Cygwin and MinGW on Windows.
+$ bpkg build libcutl
-The standard autotools-based build system is used on these platforms. After
-unpacking the source code archive, change to the libcutl package directory
-(referred to as libcutl/ from now on) and run the configure script:
-To see the available configuration options run configure with --help:
-./configure --help
-As an example, the following configure command only builds shared libraries,
-uses the specified C and C++ compilers, and compiles with optimization and
-without debug information:
-./configure --disable-static CC=gcc-4.5 CXX=g++-4.5 CFLAGS=-O3 CXXFLAGS=-O3
-Once configuration is complete, run make to build libcutl:
-Once the build is completed successfully, you can install the libcutl headers
-and libraries using the install target (you may need to do this step as root
-depending on the installation directory):
-make install
-Building on Windows
-The following build instructions are for Windows using Microsoft Visual
-Studio. If you would like to build libcutl with GCC either using Cygwin
-or MinGW, refer to the "Building on UNIX" section above.
-The standard Visual Studio project and solution files are used on this
-platform. To build libcutl, unpack the source code archive and open the
-libcutl-vc<N>.sln file located in the libcutl package directory (referred
-to as libcutl\ from now on). Here <N> is the version of Visual Studio that
-you are using. Once the solution is open, select the desired build
-configuration (Debug or Release) and platform (Win32 or x64) and build
-the solution.
-The resulting 32-bit DLLs and import libraries are placed into the
-libcutl\bin\ and libcutl\lib\ directories, respectively. Similarly, the
-64-bit DLLs and import libraries are placed into libcutl\bin64\ and
-libcutl\lib64\. The Release versions of the import libraries are named
-cutl.lib and the Debug versions are named cutl-d.lib.
-To configure Visual Studio to automatically locate the libcutl headers,
-DLLs, and import libraries, add the following paths to your VC++
- Include: ...\libcutl
- Library: ...\libcutl\lib
- Executable: ...\libcutl\bin
- Include: ...\libcutl
- Library: ...\libcutl\lib64
- Executable: ...\libcutl\bin64
+But if you don't want to use the package manager, then you can also build it
+manually using the standard build2 build system.
