NAME

       xmkmf - create a Makefile from an Imakefile

SYNOPSIS

       xmkmf [ -a ] [ topdir [ curdir ] ]

DESCRIPTION

       The  xmkmf  command  is  the  normal  way  to create a Makefile from an
       Imakefile shipped with third-party software.

       When invoked with no arguments in a directory containing an  Imakefile,
       the  imake  program  is  run with arguments appropriate for your system
       (configured into imake when it was built) and generates a Makefile.

       When invoked with the -a option,  xmkmf  builds  the  Makefile  in  the
       current  directory,  and then automatically executes ``make Makefiles''
       (in case there  are  subdirectories),  ``make  includes'',  and  ``make
       depend'' for you.

       If a topdir is given, xmkmf assumes nothing is installed on your system
       and looks for files in the build tree instead of  using  the  installed
       versions.   Optionally,  curdir may be specified as a relative pathname
       from the top of the  build  tree  to  the  current  directory.   It  is
       necessary to supply curdir if the current directory has subdirectories,
       or the Makefile will not be able to build the subdirectories.
