One can also use spack to create an environment.
One can also use spack to create an environment and view with the provided `spack.yaml` file.
First, make sure that you've set up spack in your shell (see `these instructions <>`_).
Next, be sure that your `~/.spack/packages.yaml` is configured to ensure that spack can detect system-provided packages.

From the root directory of mpifileutils, run the command `spack find` to determine which packages spack will install.
Next, run `spack concretize` to build have spack perform dependency analysis.
Finally, run `spack install` to build the dependencies.

There are two ways to tell CMake about the dependencies.
First, you can use `spack load [depname]` to put the installed dependency into your environment paths.
Then, at configure time, CMake will automatically detect the location of these dependencies.
Thus, the commands to build become:

.. code-block:: Bash

$ git clone
$ mkdir build install
$ cd mpifileutils
$ spack install
$ spack load dtcmp
$ spack load libcircle
$ spack load libarchive
$ cd ../build
$ cmake ../mpifileutils

The other way to use spack is to create a "view" to the installed dependencies.
Details on this are coming soon.
