New file

1 This is GNU paxutils.
2 This document describes the actions needed to build the pre-release
3 or CVS version of the package. See end of file for copying conditions.
4
5 * Introduction
6
7 This is a *pre-release* version, and not ready for production use
8 yet. For information about GNU paxutils and its aims, please see file
9 README.
10
11 If you are taking source from CVS, you will need to have automake,
12 and autoconf installed to bootstrap the package. See the chapter
13 `Building' for the detailed instructions. After bootstrapping, there
14 should be a file 'INSTALL' with generic installation
15 instructions. Package-specific installation instructions are set forth
16 in the file README.
17
18 Please, note that the accompanying documentation may be inaccurate
19 or incomplete (well, to say the truth it is absent. See TODO for more
20 info). The ChangeLog file is currently the authoritative documentation
21 of all recent changes.

25 * Checking Out the Sources
26
27 The following instructions apply if you wish to obtain sources from
28 the CVS repository:
29
30 To checkout the source tree from CVS issue the following command:
31
32 CVS_RSH=ssh \
33 cvs -d :ext:anoncvs@savannah.gnu.org:/cvsroot/paxutils checkout paxutils
34
35 Make sure SSHv2 is used.
36
37 This will give you read-only access. If you think you need write access,
38 contact the mailing list.
39
40 The CVS repository is also available via HTTP from
41
42 http://savannah.gnu.org/cgi-bin/viewcvs/paxutils/paxutils
43
44 * Building
45
46 In order to build this you will first need to have right versions
47 of autotools. At the time of this writing these are:
48
49 Package Version (>=)
50 ======== ============
51 automake 1.8.5
52 autoconf 2.59
53 gettext 0.14.1
54
55 To prepare the package for building run build-aux/bootstrap. For
56 example:
57
58 $ cd paxutils
59 $ build-aux/bootstrap
60
61 If you have already checked out gnulib sources, use --gnulib-srcdir
62 to specify their location, this will spare you time and bandwidth:
63
64 $ cd paxutils
65 $ build-aux/bootstrap --gnulib-srcdir=$HOME/gnu/gnulib
