This document describes how to configure and build the extended
attribute library and utility from source, and how to install them.

0. If you have the binary rpm, simply install it and skip to step 2 (below).
   The rpm command to do this is:
	# rpm -Uvh acl

   The Debian command to do this is:
	# dpkg -i acl
   or, if you have apt configured (don't need the binary package):
	# apt-get install acl

1. Configure, build and install the package

   The "acl" package uses autoconf/configure and expects a GNU build
   environment (your platform must at least have both autoconf and gmake). 

   If you just want to spin an RPM and/or tar file, use the Makepkgs
   script in the top level directory. This will configure and build
   the package and leave binary and src RPMs in the build/rpm
   directory.  It will also leave a tar file in the build/tar
   directory.

       # ./Makepkgs verbose

   If you want to build the package and install it manually, use the
   following steps:

       # make configure  (or run autoconf; ./configure)
       # make
       # su root
       # make install install-lib

   Note that there are so many "install" variants out there that we
   wrote our own script (see "install-sh" in the top level directory).

   If you wish to turn off debugging asserts in the command build and
   turn on the optimizer then set the shell environment variables:

	OPTIMIZER=-O
	DEBUG=-DNDEBUG

   before running make configure or Makepkgs.
