This file contains instructions for developers and advanced users that
wants to build from version controlled sources.
We require several tools to build the software, including:
- Automake <>
- Autoconf <>
- Libtool <>
- Gettext <>
- Texinfo <>
- help2man <>
- libgcrypt <>
- Tar <>
- Gzip <>
- Texlive & epsf <> (for PDF manual)
- CVS <> (for gettext autopoint)
- GTK-DOC <> (for API manual)
- Git <>
- Perl <>
- Valgrind <> (optional)
The required software is typically disitributed with your operating
system, and the instructions for installing them differ. Here are
some hints:
sudo apt-get install git-core autoconf automake libtool gettext cvs texinfo help2man valgrind texlive texlive-generic-recommended texlive-extra-utils gtk-doc-tools libgcrypt-dev
To download the version controlled sources:
$ git clone git://
$ cd gnutls
The next step is to run autoreconf, ./configure, etc:
$ make bootstrap
Then build the project normally:
$ make
$ make check
Happy hacking!
