I. From the command line
------------------------
There are two ways to quickly build FreeType 2 from the command line.
The first, and favorite one, is to use the "Jam" build tool. Jam is
a highly portable replacement for Make whose control files do not
depend on the current platform or compiler toolset.
For more information, please see: http://www.freetype.org/jam/index.html
The second one is to use "GNU Make" (and NO OTHER MAKE TOOL).
1. Building FT2 with "Jam":
===========================
once you've got *our version* of the Jam tool installed on your
system, simply go to the top-level FT2 directory, then type:
"jam"
on the command line. This will build the library and place it
in the "objs" directory.
By default, a static library is built. On Unix systems, it's possible
to build a shared library through the "libtool" script. You'll need
to have libtool installed on your system, then re-define a few
environment variables before invoking Jam, as in:
export CC="libtool --mode=compile"
export LINK="libtool --mode=link"
jam
In later releases of FT2, building shared libraries with Jam should
become automatic..
2. Building FT2 with "GNU Make":
================================
You need to have GNU Make (version 3.78.1 or newer) installed on
your system to compile the library from the command line. This will
_NOT_ work with other make tools (including BSD make)!
