--enable-xxx/disable-xxx options in configure
|Reported by:||Maxim Reznik||Owned by:|
To write ebuild (instalation script for Gentoo) we need to add --enable-xxx/disable-xxx options in configure.
Here quote from Gentoo developer manual:
Often the configure script will try to automatically enable support for optional components based upon installed packages. This must not be allowed to happen. For example, if a user has Perl installed but has USE="-perl", packages with optional Perl support must not link against Perl. This automatic detection can usually be overridden using --enable- and --disable or --with- and --without- switches
