If you want to build Multovl from scratch, keep on reading:

Building Instructions for the Impatient

You will need cmake 2.8 or above, a C++98-compliant compiler, 
and the Boost libraries (1.44 or above) to build Multovl.

By default all these external libraries will be linked statically.
To link all of them dynamically instead, specify the CMake option

The basic steps if you use the default system compilers:

mkdir build 
cd build
cmake -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release -DBOOST_ROOT=/path/to/boost \
    -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/path/to/installdir ..

Or you can spell out what make all does:

make apps
make doc    (this generates Doxygen documentation if you have Doxygen installed)

And then finally:

make install (this you may need to run as root, depending on installdir permissions)

The tools should now be installed in ${CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX}/multovl-1.3/bin.

Additional Cmake settings are listed in the top-level CMakeLists.txt, or you may run
cmake -i for interactive options, or ccmake.
You can’t perform that action at this time.
