Building Pen from Git on Debian Linux

Debian jessie/sid

N.B: Debian keeps up pretty well with releases, so there may usually be no reason to build from source. At the time of writing, this is version in sid:

root@debian:~/penloadbalancer-code# apt-cache show pen|grep Version
Version: 0.25.1-1

However, here's how one would go about it:

apt-get install automake autoconf gcc git make
mkdir Git
cd Git
git clone https://github.com/UlricE/pen.git
cd pen
aclocal
automake --add-missing
autoconf
./configure
make

Testing:

root@debian:~/Git/penloadbalancer-code # ./pen -dfU 53 8.8.8.8:53

And from another host:

ulric@qvp2:~$ dig @debian +short siag.nu
194.9.95.65
