Subject Better ./configure --help wording for paths?
Date Wed, 16 Nov 2016 12:40:59 GMT
Can we agree on a keyword/wording convention here for httpd-2.5-dev?

  --with-apr=PATH         prefix for installed APR or the full path to
  --with-pcre=PATH        Use external PCRE library
  --with-valgrind[=DIR]   Enable code to reduce valgrind false positives
                          (optionally: set path to valgrind headers)
  --with-distcache=PATH   Distcache installation directory
  --with-z=PATH           use a specific zlib library
  --with-libxml2=DIR      Specify location of libxml2
  --with-brotli=PATH      Brotli installation directory
  --with-lua=PATH         Path to the Lua 5.2/5.1 prefix
  --with-serf=PATH        Serf client library
  --with-ssl=PATH         OpenSSL installation directory
  --with-nghttp2=PATH     nghttp2 installation directory

Contrast to apr-2.0 and the autoconf keywords and text;

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/apr/bin', `/usr/local/apr/lib' etc.  You can specify
an installation prefix other than `/usr/local/apr' using `--prefix',
for instance `--prefix=$HOME'.

For better control, use the options below.

Fine tuning of the installation directories:
  --bindir=DIR            user executables [EPREFIX/bin]
  --sbindir=DIR           system admin executables [EPREFIX/sbin]
  --libexecdir=DIR        program executables [EPREFIX/libexec]
  --sysconfdir=DIR        read-only single-machine data [PREFIX/etc]
  --sharedstatedir=DIR    modifiable architecture-independent data
  --localstatedir=DIR     modifiable single-machine data [PREFIX/var]
  --libdir=DIR            object code libraries [EPREFIX/lib]
  --includedir=DIR        C header files [PREFIX/include]
  --oldincludedir=DIR     C header files for non-gcc [/usr/include]
  --datarootdir=DIR       read-only arch.-independent data root
  --datadir=DIR           read-only architecture-independent data
  --infodir=DIR           info documentation [DATAROOTDIR/info]
  --localedir=DIR         locale-dependent data [DATAROOTDIR/locale]
  --mandir=DIR            man documentation [DATAROOTDIR/man]
  --docdir=DIR            documentation root [DATAROOTDIR/doc/PACKAGE]
  --htmldir=DIR           html documentation [DOCDIR]
  --dvidir=DIR            dvi documentation [DOCDIR]
  --pdfdir=DIR            pdf documentation [DOCDIR]
  --psdir=DIR             ps documentation [DOCDIR]
  --with-sysroot=DIR Search for dependent libraries within DIR
  --with-installbuilddir=DIR location to store APR build files (defaults to
  --with-efence[=DIR]     path to Electric Fence installation
  --with-valgrind[=DIR]   Enable code to teach valgrind about apr pools
                          (optionally: set path to valgrind headers)
  --with-egd[=DIR]        use EGD-compatible socket
  --with-openssl=DIR      specify location of OpenSSL
  --with-nss=DIR          specify location of NSS
  --with-commoncrypto=DIR specify location of CommonCrypto
  --with-gdbm=DIR         enable GDBM support
  --with-ndbm=PATH        Find the NDBM header and library in `PATH/include'
                          and `PATH/lib'. If PATH is of the form
                          library in LIB. If you omit the `=PATH' part
  --with-berkeley-db=PATH Find the Berkeley DB header and library in
                          `PATH/include' and `PATH/lib'. If PATH is of the
                          `=PATH' part completely, the configure script will
  --with-pgsql=DIR        specify PostgreSQL location
  --with-mysql=DIR        enable MySQL DBD driver
  --with-sqlite3=DIR      enable sqlite3 DBD driver
  --with-sqlite2=DIR      enable sqlite2 DBD driver
                          path to Oracle include files
  --with-oracle=DIR       enable Oracle DBD driver; giving ORACLE_HOME as
  --with-odbc=DIR         specify ODBC location
  --with-libxml2=DIR      specify libxml2 location
  --with-expat=DIR        specify Expat location
  --with-iconv=DIR        path to iconv installation
