12.5 Transforming Program Names When Installing

Autoconf supports changing the names of programs when installing them. In order to use these transformations, `configure.ac' must call the macro AC_ARG_PROGRAM.

Place in output variable program_transform_name a sequence of sed commands for changing the names of installed programs.

If any of the options described below are given to configure, program names are transformed accordingly. Otherwise, if AC_CANONICAL_TARGET has been called and a `--target' value is given that differs from the host type (specified with `--host'), the target type followed by a dash is used as a prefix. Otherwise, no program name transformation is done.
