`configure' Invocation

`configure' recognizes the following options to control how it operates.
`--help'
`-h'
     Print a summary of the options to `configure', and exit.
`--version'
`-V'
     Print the version of Autoconf used to generate the `configure'
     script, and exit.
`--cache-file=FILE'
     Enable the cache: use and save the results of the tests in FILE,
     traditionally `config.cache'.  FILE defaults to `/dev/null' to
     disable caching.
`--config-cache'
`-C'
     Alias for `--cache-file=config.cache'.
`--quiet'
`--silent'
`-q'
     Do not print messages saying which checks are being made.  To
     suppress all normal output, redirect it to `/dev/null' (any error
     messages will still be shown).
`--srcdir=DIR'
     Look for the package's source code in directory DIR.  Usually
     `configure' can determine that directory automatically.
`configure' also accepts some other, not widely useful, options.  Run
`configure --help' for more details.
