0. BUILDING AND INSTALLATION (Briefly)

$ ./configure
$ make
$ make verify   # (optional)
$ sudo make install

1. BUILDING AND INSTALLATION (In Depth)

To build libevent, type

$ ./configure && make

     (If you got libevent from the git repository, you will
      first need to run the included "autogen.sh" script in order to
      generate the configure script.)

Install as root via

# make install

You can run the regression tests by running

$ make verify

Before, reporting any problems, please run the regression tests.

To enable the low-level tracing build the library as:

   CFLAGS=-DUSE_DEBUG ./configure [...]

Standard configure flags should work.  In particular, see:

   --disable-shared          Only build static libraries
   --prefix                  Install all files relative to this directory.


The configure script also supports the following flags:

   --enable-gcc-warnings     Enable extra compiler checking with GCC.
   --disable-malloc-replacement
                             Don't let applications replace our memory
                             management functions
   --disable-openssl         Disable support for OpenSSL encryption.
   --disable-thread-support  Don't support multithreaded environments.
