= Building, installing =

Dependencies: cmake, libxml2, flex, bison, pkg-config
Optional dependencies needed by nva: libpciaccess
Optional dependencies needed by vdpow: vdpau, libx11

If your distribution has -dev or -devel packages, you'll also need ones
corresponding to the dependencies above.

On ubuntu it can be done like this:

apt-get install cmake flex libpciaccess-dev bison libx11-dev libxext-dev libxml2-dev libvdpau-dev

To build, use

 $ cmake .
 $ make

To install [which is optional], use

 $ make install

If you want to install to a non-default directory, you'll also need to pass
it as an option to cmake before building, eg.:

 $ cmake -D CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX:PATH=/usr/local .

== Cmake options ==

If you don't want to compile some parts of envytools, you can pass the
following options to cmake:
