Subject: [gentoo-user] [OT] Questions about building from source tarball
Date: Tue, 30 Oct 2012 08:58:43
1 Several years ago, back in the days of Mozilla 0.9x and Phoenix, I
2 used to build Mozilla and/or Pheonix from the source tarball. I've been
3 using Gentoo for years, and I've forgotten a lot about building manually
4 from source. I asked this question on, but no answers
5 yet. Hopefully, I can get some help here. I'm looking at
6 and I
7 have a few questions...
9 1) What options do I need to set to make Seamonkey (or Firefox) build
10 in, and run from, a local dir, e.g. "${HOME}/seamonkey"? Something to
11 do with "prefix" and "exec-prefix"? I'd prefer to avoid jumping to root
12 for the install. And throwing in files in /usr that portage doesn't
13 know about, is begging for trouble.
15 2) I read the instructions on how to pass the "O2" flag to the make and
16 compile process. What about the rest of the CFLAGS line? My CFLAGS are
18 CFLAGS="-O2 -march=native -mfpmath=sse -fomit-frame-pointer -pipe -fno-unwind-tables -fno-asynchronous-unwind-tables"
20 For those who are wondering, I want to tweak it well beyond what the
21 Gentoo ebuild allows. And I'll be doing some experimentation, so I
22 couldn't specify what I want right now.
