 Building and Installing
 Heimdal uses GNU Autoconf to configure for specific hosts, and GNU
 Automake to manage makefiles. If this is new to you, the short
 instruction is to run the `configure' script in the top level
 directory, and when that finishes `make'.
 If you want to build the distribution in a different directory from the
 source directory, you will need a make that implements VPATH correctly,
 such as GNU make.
 You will need to build the distribution:
    * A compiler that supports a "loose" ANSI C mode, such as `gcc'.
    * lex or flex
    * awk
    * yacc or bison
    * a socket library
    * NDBM or Berkeley DB for building the server side.
 When everything is built, you can install by doing `make install'. The
 default location for installation is `/usr/heimdal', but this can be
 changed by running `configure' with `--prefix=/some/other/place'.
 If you need to change the default behavior, configure understands the
 following options:
      DB is preferred before NDBM, but if you for some reason want to
      use NDBM instead, you can use this option.
      Gives the location of Kerberos 4 libraries and headers. This
      enables Kerberos 4 support in the applications (telnet, rsh,
      popper, etc) and the KDC. It is automatically check for in
      `/usr/athena'. If you keep libraries and headers in different
      places, you can instead give the path to each with the
      `--with-krb4-lib=`dir'', and `--with-krb4-include=`dir'' options.
      You will need a fairly recent version of our Kerberos 4
      distribution for `rshd' and `popper' to support version 4 clients.
      Enables support for getting DCE credentials and tokens.  See the
      README files in `appl/dceutils' for more information.
      By default some of the application programs will build with
      support for one-time passwords (OTP).  Use this option to disable
      that support.
      Enable some C2 support for OSF/Digital Unix/Tru64.  Use this
      option if you are running your OSF operating system in C2 mode.
      Gives the path for the GNU Readline library, which will be used in
      some programs. If no readline library is found, the (simpler)
      editline library will be used instead.
      Enables hesiod support in push.
      Add support for using netinfo to lookup configuration information.
      Probably only useful (and working) on NextStep/Mac OS X.
      Disable the IPv6 support.
      Compile Heimdal with support for storing the database in LDAP.
      Requires OpenLDAP <>.  See
      <> for more information.
      Normally, the build process will figure out by itself if the
      machine is big or little endian.  It might fail in some cases when
      cross-compiling.  If it does fail to figure it out, use the
      relevant of these two options.
      On Irix there are three different ABIs that can be used (`32',
      `n32', or `64').  This option allows you to override the automatic
      Do not use the mmap system call.  Normally, configure detects if
      there is a working mmap and it is only used if there is one.  Only
      try this option if it fails to work anyhow.
