are five commands special options the GIMP `configure' script
recognizes. These are:
--enable-shared and --disable-shared. This option affects whether
--enable-shared and --disable-shared. This option affects whether
shared libraries will be built or not. Shared libraries provide
for much smaller executables. The default is to enable shared
libraries. Disabling shared libraries is almost never a good idea.
--enable-debug and --disable-debug. This option causes the build
--enable-debug and --disable-debug. This option causes the build
process to compile with debugging enabled. If debugging is
disabled, the GIMP will instead be compiled with optimizations turned
on. The default is for debugging to be disabled. NOTE: This
option is intended primarily as a convenience for developers.
--enable-ansi and --disable-ansi. This option causes stricter
--enable-ansi and --disable-ansi. This option causes stricter
ANSI C checking to be performed when compiling with GCC. The
default is for strict checking to be disabled. NOTE: This option
is intended primarily as a convenience for developers.
--enable-gimpdir=DIR. This option changes the default directory
--enable-gimpdir=DIR. This option changes the default directory
the gimp uses to search for its configuration files from ~/.gimp-1.3
(the directory .gimp-1.3 in the users home directory) to DIR.
--without-libtiff, without-libjpeg, --without-libpng. configure
--without-libtiff, without-libjpeg, --without-libpng. configure
will bail out if libtiff, libjpeg or libpng can not be found. You
better fix the underlying problem and install these libraries with
their header files. If you absolutely want to compile GIMP without
support for TIFF, JPEG or PNG you need to explicitely disable
them using the options given above.
--disable-print. The print plug-in requires a recent version of
--enable-gtk-doc. This option controls whether the libgimp API
reference will be created using gtk-doc. The HTML pages are
included in a standard tarball, so you will only need this if you
are building from CVS.
--with-html-dir=PATH. This option allows to specify where the
libgimp API reference should be installed. You might want to modify
the path so it points to the place where glib and gtk+ installled
their API references so that the libgimp reference can link to
them.
--disable-print. The print plug-in requires a recent version of
libgimpprint. If you don't have it already installed, download
it from http://gimp-print.sourceforge.net/. If you want to compile
GIMP without support for printing, use the --disable-print option.
--enable-perl and --disable-perl. The perl extension does not build
on all systems. If you experience problems use --disable-perl
and gimp will not even try to built it. The perl extension does
not usually respect the normal configure prefix but uses perl's
instead. You can force it to use a different prefix by giving it as
an argument to the --enable-perl option (--enable-perl=/my/prefix),
however, you will usually have to set PERL5LIB or equivalent
environment variables, otherwise gimp-perl will not run or you will
get many errors on startup. See README.perl for even finer grained
control about installation paths (and distribution making).

The `make' command builds several things:
- A bunch of public libraries in the directories starting with libgimp.
- The plug-in programs in the `plug-ins' subdirectory.
