NAME
       xmkmf - create a	Makefile from an Imakefile

SYNOPSIS
       xmkmf [ -a ] [ topdir [ curdir ]	]

DESCRIPTION
       The xmkmf command is the	normal way to create a Makefile	from an	Imake-
       file shipped with third-party software.

       When invoked with no arguments in a directory containing	an  Imakefile,
       the  imake  program  is	run with arguments appropriate for your	system
       (configured into	imake when it was built) and generates a Makefile.

       When invoked with the -a	option,	xmkmf builds the Makefile in the  cur-
       rent  directory,	and then automatically executes	``make Makefiles'' (in
       case there are subdirectories), ``make includes'', and ``make  depend''
       for you.

       If a topdir is given, xmkmf assumes nothing is installed	on your	system
       and looks for files in the build	tree instead of	 using	the  installed
       versions.   Optionally,	curdir may be specified	as a relative pathname
       from the	top of the build tree to the current directory.	 It is	neces-
       sary  to	 supply	curdir if the current directory	has subdirectories, or
       the Makefile will not be	able to	build the subdirectories.
