HOW TO BUILD AND INSTALL DISCOUNT

1) Unpacking the distribution

The DISCOUNT sources are distributed in tarballs. After extracting from
the tarball, you should end up with all the source and build files in the
directory
discount-(version)

2) Installing the distribution

DISCOUNT uses configure.sh to set itself up for compilation. To run
configure, just do ``./configure.sh'' and it will check your system for
build dependencies and build makefiles for you. If configure.sh finishes
without complaint, you can then do a ``make'' to compile everything and a
``make install'' to install the binaries.

Configure.sh has a few options that can be set:

--src=DIR where the source lives (.)
--prefix=DIR where to install the final product (/usr/local)
--execdir=DIR where to put executables (prefix/bin)
--sbindir=DIR where to put static executables (prefix/sbin)
--confdir=DIR where to put configuration information (/etc)
--libdir=DIR where to put libraries (prefix/lib)
--libexecdir=DIR where to put private executables
--mandir=DIR where to put manpages
--enable-dl-tag Use the DL tag extension
--enable-pandoc-header Use pandoc-style header blocks
--enable-superscript A^B expands to A<sup>B</sup>
--enable-amalloc Use a debugging memory allocator (to detect leaks)
--relaxed-emphasis Don't treat _ in the middle of a word as emphasis
--with-tabstops=N Set tabstops to N characters (default is 4)

3) Installing sample programs and manpages

The standard ``make install'' rule just installs the binaries. If you
want to install the sample programs, they are installed with
``make install.samples''; to install manpages, ``make install.man''.
A shortcut to install everything is ``make install.everything''
