--libs=(libs) Use the given libraries
--link=(linker) Use the given linker
--linkflags=(flags) Use the given linker flags
--ar=(archiver) Use the given librarian for static libraries
--arflags=(flags) Use the given flags for static libraries

--without-threads Build parrot without OS thread support
Build parrot without core-required
statically compiled NCI call frames
(useful for testing dynamic frame builders)

statically compiled NCI call frames
External Library Options (use --with- or --without-):
--with-llvm Link to LLVM if it is available
--without-gettext Build parrot without gettext support
--without-gmp Build parrot without GMP support
--without-libffi Build parrot without libffi support
--without-opengl Build parrot without OpenGL support (GL/GLU/GLUT)
--without-readline Build parrot without readline support
--without-pcre Build parrot without pcre support
--without-zlib Build parrot without zlib support
ICU Options:
For using a system ICU, these options can be used:
Location of the script used for ICU autodetection.
You just need to specify this option if icu-config
is not in your PATH.
--icu-config=none Can be used to disable the autodetection feature.
It will also be disabled if you specify any other
of the following ICU options.
If you do not have a full ICU installation:
--without-icu Build parrot without ICU support
--icuheaders=(path) Location of ICU headers without /unicode
--icushared=(flags) Full linker command to create shared libraries
Other Options (may not be implemented):
--maintainer Create imcc's parser and lexer files. Needs a working
parser and lexer.
Install Options:
--prefix=PREFIX Install architecture-independent files in PREFIX
--exec-prefix=EPREFIX Install architecture-dependent files in EPREFIX
By default, `make install' will install all the files in
`/usr/local/bin', `/usr/local/lib' etc. You can specify
an installation prefix other than `/usr/local' using `--prefix',
for instance `--prefix=\$HOME'.
For better control, use the options below.
Fine tuning of the installation directories:
--bindir=DIR user executables [EPREFIX/bin]
--sbindir=DIR system admin executables [EPREFIX/sbin]
--libexecdir=DIR program executables [EPREFIX/libexec]
--datadir=DIR read-only architecture-independent data [PREFIX/share]

--sharedstatedir=DIR modifiable architecture-independent data [PREFIX/com]
--localstatedir=DIR modifiable single-machine data [PREFIX/var]
--libdir=DIR object code libraries [EPREFIX/lib]
--includedir=DIR C header files [PREFIX/include]
--oldincludedir=DIR C header files for non-gcc [/usr/include]
--infodir=DIR info documentation [PREFIX/info]
--mandir=DIR man documentation [PREFIX/man]

=head1 NAME
Parrot::Configure::Options::Conf - Functionality shared by all Parrot
configuration options processing modes
use Parrot::Configure::Options::Conf qw(
Parrot::Configure::Options::Conf exports on demand certain variables and
subroutines used in other packages which implement different modes of
configuration options processing. Currently, these packages are:
=over 4
=item * Parrot::Configure:Options::Conf::CLI
... for the command-line interface to F<>; and
=item * Parrot::Configure::Options::Conf::File
... for the configuration-file interface to that same program.
Three variables are exported on demand.
=head2 C<$script>
Defaults to string '', but may be overridden for testing purposes.
=head2 C<$parrot_version>
String which is return value of C<Parrot::BuildUtil::parrot_version()>; may be
overridden for testing purposes.
Two subroutines are exported on demand.
=head2 C<print_help()>
Help message printed when C<perl --help> is called. Takes no
arguments; prints to STDOUT; implicitly returns true value upon success.
=head2 C<print_version()>
Version number printed when C<perl --version> is called. Takes
no arguments; prints to STDOUT; implicitly returns true value upon success.
=head1 NOTES
The functionality in this package originally appeared in F<>. It
was transferred here and refactored by James E Keenan.
=head1 SEE ALSO
