       xmkmf - create a Makefile from an Imakefile


       xmkmf [ -a ] [ topdir [ curdir ] ]


       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.
