To build after having extracted everything from CVS, do this:
+ You need the following software installed:
+ o autoconf 2.50 (or later)
+ o automake 1.5 (or later)
+ o libtool 1.4 (or later)
+ o GNU m4 (required by autoconf)
+ o nroff + perl (if you don't have nroff and perl and you for some reason
+ don't want to install them, you can rename the source file
+ src/hugehelp.c.cvs to src/hugehelp.c and avoid having to generate this
+ file. This will of course give you an older version of the file that isn't
+ up-to-date. That file was checked in once and won't be updated very
+ regularly.)
+ For Mac OS X users, Guido Neitzer write down the following step-by-step guide:
+ 1. Install fink (
+ 2. Update fink to the newest version (with the installed fink)
+ 3. Install the latest version of autoconf, automake and m4 with fink
+ 4. Install version 1.4.1 of libtool - you find it in the "unstable" section
+ (read the manual to see how to get unstable versions)
+ 5. Get cURL from the cvs
+ 6. Build cURL with "./buildconf", "./configure", "make", "sudo make install"
