This file is part of the mailfromd package.
This document describes the actions needed to build the pre-release
or SVN version of the package. See end of file for copying conditions.

* Introduction

This is a *pre-release* version, and not ready for production use yet.
Please send comments and problem reports to <bug-mailfromd@gnu.org.ua>.

If you have taken the sources from SVN you will need the following
packages to build mailfromd.  I don't make any extra effort to accommodate
older versions of these packages, so please make sure that you have the
latest stable version.

- Automake <http://www.gnu.org/software/automake/>
- Autoconf <http://www.gnu.org/software/autoconf/>
- Bison <http://www.gnu.org/software/bison/>
- Flex <http://flex.sourceforge.net/>
- Gettext <http://www.gnu.org/software/gettext/>
- Gnulib <http://www.gnu.org/software/gnulib/>
- Mailutils <http://www.gnu.org/software/mailutils/>
- M4 <http://www.gnu.org/software/m4/>
- Texinfo <http://www.gnu.org/software/texinfo>
- Wget <http://www.gnu.org/software/wget/>

* Checking Out the Sources

The following instructions apply if you wish to obtain sources from
the SVN repository:

To check out the entires source tree from SVN (note: it is more than
16Mb), issue the following command:

 svn checkout http://svn.gnu.org.ua/sources/mailfromd

To check out only the development branch, do

 svn checkout http://svn.gnu.org.ua/sources/mailfromd/trunk

For more information, visit http://puszcza.gnu.org.ua/svn/?group=mailfromd

* Bootstrapping

After checking out the sources, you will need to _bootstrap_ them.  To do
so follow the steps described below.  Notice, that you only have to do it
once.  Packaged alpha versions do not need bootstrapping.

1. Change to the source tree directory

   cd mailfromd

2. Populate the source tree with the necessary files from Gnulib.
and create the configuration framework.  Run:

   ./bootstrap GNULIB-DIR

where GNULIB-DIR is the directory containing the gnulib source tree.
For more information about `bootstrap', run `bootstrap --help'.

3. Configure and build the package as described in the documentation. See

   http://mailfromd.software.gnu.org.ua/manual/html_node/Building
