15.9 configure Invocation

configure recognizes the following options to control how it operates.

--help
-h
Print a summary of the options to configure, and exit.
--version
-V
Print the version of Autoconf used to generate the configure script, and exit.
--cache-file=file
Enable the cache: use and save the results of the tests in file, traditionally config.cache. file defaults to /dev/null to disable caching.
--config-cache
-C
Alias for --cache-file=config.cache.
--quiet
--silent
-q
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).
--srcdir=dir
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.
