10.7 Operation Controls

configure recognizes the following options to control how it operates.

Use and save the results of the tests in file instead of './config.cache'. Set file to '/dev/null' to disable caching, for debugging configure.
Print a summary of the options to configure, and exit.
Do not print messages saying which checks are being made.
Look for the Bash source code in directory dir. Usually configure can determine that directory automatically.
Print the version of Autoconf used to generate the configure script, and exit.

configure also accepts some other, not widely used, boilerplate options. 'configure --help' prints the complete list.
