13.9 configure Invocation

configure recognizes the following options to control how it operates.

Print a summary of the options to configure, and exit.

Print the version of Autoconf used to generate the configure script, and exit.

Enable the cache: use and save the results of the tests in file, traditionally `config.cache'. file defaults to `/dev/null' to disable caching.

Alias for `--cache-file=config.cache'.

Do not print messages saying which checks are being made. To suppress all normal output, redirect it to `/dev/null' (any error messages will still be shown).

Look for the package's source code in directory dir. Usually configure can determine that directory automatically.

configure also accepts some other, not widely useful, options. Run `configure --help' for more details.
