Subject [jira] Commented: (COUCHDB-960) Have configure work without flags on Debian/Ubuntu
Date Tue, 23 Nov 2010 14:14:13 GMT


Noah Slater commented on COUCHDB-960:

Seems like a good proposal. Bonus points for doing it in a way that works on Debian, and other
Debian based distros. Extra bonus points for adapting it to work with as many other distros
as possible. Patches welcome.

> On a Debian/Ubuntu system, you have to help configure to find the JS library:
> xulrunner_gre_version=`xulrunner --gre-version`
> ./configure --with-js-lib=/usr/lib/xulrunner-devel-${xulrunner_gre_version}/lib/ --with-js-include=/usr/lib/xulrunner-devel-${xulrunner_gre_version}/include/
&& make
> It seems that Yelp is able to do this on it's own using special m4 macros[1].
> I would like the CouchDB configure script to be able to find the JS library without requiring
extra arguments.
