This appendix describes the special options you can use while compiling the gdk-pixbuf library.

Building the Library

The gdk-pixbuf library uses the standard GNU build system, using autoconf for package configuration and resolving portability issues, automake for building makefiles that comply with the GNU Coding Standards, and libtool for building shared libraries on multiple platforms. The normal sequence for compiling and installing the gdk-pixbuf library is thus:

  make install

The standard options provided by GNU autoconf may be passed to the configure script. Please see the autoconf documentation or run ./configure --help for information about the standard options.
