Docs:  Installation

Generally installation is as simple as:
  1. Configure:
    ./configure --with-mpich=/opt/mpich/mpich-1.2.5 --prefix=/home/kris
  2. Make:
  3. Install:
    make install

There are an abundance of options to configure which some users might find helpful.  These can be found by running:
       ./configure --help
This output is listed below:

`configure' configures this package to adapt to many kinds of systems.
Usage: ./configure [OPTION]... [VAR=VALUE]...

To assign environment variables (e.g., CC, CFLAGS...), specify them as VAR=VALUE. See below for descriptions of some of the useful variables.

Defaults for the options are specified in brackets.
  -h, --help              display this help and exit
      --help=short        display options specific to this package
      --help=recursive    display the short help of all the included packages
  -V, --version           display version information and exit
  -q, --quiet, --silent   do not print `checking...' messages
      --cache-file=FILE   cache test results in FILE [disabled]
  -C, --config-cache      alias for `--cache-file=config.cache'
  -n, --no-create         do not create output files
      --srcdir=DIR        find the sources in DIR [configure dir or `..']
Installation directories:
  --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]
  --sysconfdir=DIR       read-only single-machine data [PREFIX/etc]
  --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]
System types:
  --build=BUILD     configure for building on BUILD [guessed]
  --host=HOST       cross-compile to build programs to run on HOST [BUILD]
  --target=TARGET   configure for building compilers for TARGET [HOST]
Optional Features:
  --disable-FEATURE       do not include FEATURE (same as --enable-FEATURE=no)
  --enable-FEATURE[=ARG]  include FEATURE [ARG=yes]
--enable-full - Enable full tracing of communcation
--with-details - Get additional data about the communication patterns
--enable-stddev - output standard deviations
--enable-cache  - Turn on configure caching
Optional Packages:
  --with-PACKAGE[=ARG]    use PACKAGE [ARG=yes]
  --without-PACKAGE       do not use PACKAGE (same as --with-PACKAGE=no)
--with-gtable       - Use the generic table package for output
--with-max_procs    - define the maximum number of processes
--with-mpich=path   - Assume that we are building with MPICH
--with-lammpi=path  - Assume that we are building with LAM/MPI
--with-ibmmpi       - Use the IBM SP implementation of MPI
--with-sgimpi       - Use the SGI implementation of MPI
--with-mpichnt      - Use MPICH for Windows NT
Some influential environment variables:
  CC          C compiler command
  CFLAGS      C compiler flags
  LDFLAGS     linker flags, e.g. -L<lib dir> if you have libraries in a
              nonstandard directory <lib dir>
  CPPFLAGS    C/C++ preprocessor flags, e.g. -I<include dir> if you have
              headers in a nonstandard directory <include dir>
  F77         Fortran 77 compiler command
  FFLAGS      Fortran 77 compiler flags
  CXX         C++ compiler command
  CXXFLAGS    C++ compiler flags
  F90         Fortran 90 compiler command
  F90FLAGS    Fortran 90 compiler flags
  CPP         C preprocessor

Use these variables to override the choices made by `configure' or to help it to find libraries and programs with nonstandard names/locations.
