Building from git source
------------------------
To prepare the libbsd source tree from git before starting the build process
some required software needs to be installed:
GNU autoconf >= 2.67
GNU automake >= 1.9
GNU libtool >= 2.0
After installing the needed software, and running the following command on
the git tree:
$ ./autogen
the source should be roughly equivalent to the distributed tar source.
Building from tar source
------------------------
The minimum software required to configure and build dpkg from a tarball is:
C89 compiler
make
The following software might be required depending on the system:
libmd (whenever the libc does not provide the needed digest functions)
The build process is done by running the usual «./configure; make». To
see all available configuration options please run «./configure --help».
