== Install
% ruby extconf.rb
% make
% sudo make install
To compile and install a particular sub-binding, you can add arguments:
% ruby extconf.rb [subdir]...
e.g.) ruby extconf.rb glib2 pango atk gdk_pixbuf2 gtk2
Or you can compile each sub-binding:
% cd <each sub-directory>
% ruby extconf.rb
% make
% sudo make install
=== extconf.rb options
: --ruby
ruby directory
: --topsrcdir
top source directory
: --topdir
top directory
: --strict
if some libraries fail to compile/install, "make"
command returns 1(exit 1)
=== Environment Variables
