configure’ configures this package to adapt to many kinds of systems.

Usage: ./configure [OPTION]… [VAR=VALUE]…

To assign environment variables (e.g., CC, CFLAGS…), specify them as
VAR=VALUE.  See below for descriptions of some of the useful variables.

Defaults for the options are specified in brackets.

-h, –help              display this help and exit
–help=short        display options specific to this package
–help=recursive    display the short help of all the included packages
-V, –version           display version information and exit
-q, –quiet, –silent   do not print `checking…’ messages
–cache-file=FILE   cache test results in FILE [disabled]
-C, –config-cache      alias for `–cache-file=config.cache’
-n, –no-create         do not create output files
–srcdir=DIR        find the sources in DIR [configure dir or `..’]

Installation directories:
–prefix=PREFIX         install architecture-independent files in PREFIX
–exec-prefix=EPREFIX   install architecture-dependent files in EPREFIX

By default, `make install’ will install all the files in
`/usr/local/bin’, `/usr/local/lib’ etc.  You can specify
an installation prefix other than `/usr/local’ using `–prefix’,
for instance `–prefix=$HOME’.

For better control, use the options below.

Some influential environment variables:
CC          C compiler command
CFLAGS      C compiler flags
LDFLAGS     linker flags, e.g. -L if you have libraries in a
nonstandard directory    LIBS        libraries to pass to the linker, e.g. -l   CPPFLAGS    C/C++/Objective C preprocessor flags, e.g. -I if
you have headers in a nonstandard directory    CXX         C++ compiler command   CXXFLAGS    C++ compiler flags   CPP         C preprocessor   CXXCPP      C++ preprocessor   F77         Fortran 77 compiler command   FFLAGS      Fortran 77 compiler flags   CCAS        assembler compiler command (defaults to CC)   CCASFLAGS   assembler compiler flags (defaults to CFLAGS)  Use these variables to override the choices made by `configure’ or to help it to find libraries and programs with nonstandard names/locations.  Description of plugins:     === Partition Support ===   Plugin Name:      partition   Description:      MySQL Partitioning Support   Supports build:   static   Configurations:   max, max-no-ndb     === Daemon Example Plugin ===   Plugin Name:      daemon_example   Description:      This is an example plugin daemon.   Supports build:   dynamic     === Simple Parser ===   Plugin Name:      ftexample   Description:      Simple full-text parser plugin   Supports build:   dynamic     === Archive Storage Engine ===   Plugin Name:      archive   Description:      Archive Storage Engine   Supports build:   static and dynamic   Configurations:   max, max-no-ndb     === Blackhole Storage Engine ===   Plugin Name:      blackhole   Description:      Basic Write-only Read-never tables   Supports build:   static and dynamic   Configurations:   max, max-no-ndb     === CSV Storage Engine ===   Plugin Name:      csv   Description:      Stores tables in text CSV format   Supports build:   static   Status:           mandatory     === Example Storage Engine ===   Plugin Name:      example   Description:      Example for Storage Engines for developers   Supports build:   dynamic   Configurations:   max, max-no-ndb     === Federated Storage Engine ===   Plugin Name:      federated   Description:      Connects to tables on remote MySQL servers   Supports build:   static and dynamic   Configurations:   max, max-no-ndb     === Memory Storage Engine ===   Plugin Name:      heap   Description:      Volatile memory based tables   Supports build:   static   Status:           mandatory     === InnoDB Storage Engine ===   Plugin Name:      innobase   Description:      Transactional Tables using InnoDB   Supports build:   static and dynamic   Configurations:   max, max-no-ndb     === MyISAM Storage Engine ===   Plugin Name:      myisam   Description:      Traditional non-transactional MySQL tables   Supports build:   static   Status:           mandatory     === MyISAM MERGE Engine ===   Plugin Name:      myisammrg   Description:      Merge multiple MySQL tables into one   Supports build:   static   Status:           mandatory     === Cluster Storage Engine ===   Plugin Name:      ndbcluster   Description:      High Availability Clustered tables   Supports build:   static   Configurations:   max
