Alien::Build::Plugin::UserdContributedAPien::Build::Plugin::Build::Autoconf(3)

NAME
       Alien::Build::Plugin::Build::Autoconf - Autoconf	plugin for
       Alien::Build

VERSION
       version 2.29

SYNOPSIS
	use alienfile;
	plugin 'Build::Autoconf';

DESCRIPTION
       This plugin provides some tools for building projects that use
       autoconf.  The main thing this provides is a "configure"	helper,
       documented below	and the	default	build stage, which is:

	'%{configure} --disable-shared',
	'%{make}',
	'%{make} install',

       On Windows, this	plugin also pulls in the
       Alien::Build::Plugin::Build::MSYS which is required for autoconf	style
       projects	on windows.

       The other thing that this plugin	does is	that it	does a double staged
       "DESTDIR" install.  The author has found	this improves the overall
       reliability of Alien modules that are based on autoconf packages.

       This plugin supports out-of-source builds (known	in autoconf terms as
       "VPATH" builds) via the meta property "out_of_source".

PROPERTIES
   with_pic
       Adds "--with-pic" option	when running "configure".  If supported	by
       your package, it	will generate position independent code	on platforms
       that support it.	 This is required to XS	modules, and generally what
       you want.

       autoconf	normally ignores options that it does not understand, so it is
       usually a safe and reasonable default to	include	it.  A small number of
       projects	look like they use autoconf, but are really an autoconf	style
       interface with a	different implementation.  They	may fail if you	try to
       provide it with options such as "--with-pic" that they do not
       recognize.  Such	packages are the rationale for this property.

   msys_version
       The version of Alien::MSYS required if it is deemed necessary.  If
       Alien::MSYS isn't needed	(if running under Unix,	or MSYS2, for example)
       this will do nothing.

   config_site
       The content for the generated "config.site".

HELPERS
   configure
	%{configure}

       The correct incantation to start	an autoconf style "configure" script
       on your platform.  Some reasonable default flags	will be	provided.

ENVIRONMENT
       "ALIEN_BUILD_SITE_CONFIG"
	   This	plugin needs to	alter the behavior of autotools	via the
	   "site.config" file and so sets and possibly overrides any existing
	   "SITE_CONFIG".  Normally that is what you want but you can also
	   insert your own "site.config" in addition by	using this environment
	   variable.
