QUESTION: Imake and customization

Post by Marie-Franc » Mon, 08 Jun 1998 04:00:00

Hi all,

I want to install xanim that uses imake to generate the Makefile on
Slackware 96.

But I want to customize the Makefile since I want to use a different
BINDIR than the default used on my system,  namely, I want to use
instead of /usr/X11R6/bin.
( I like have all instalations under /usr/local )

I never used Imake before and not sure what is the *best* way to
customize the generated Makefile.

Shoud I merely edit the generated Makefile and ignore the message:
    Makefile generated by imake - do not edit!

on the first line or is it better to customize one of the template used
by Imake?

If it is better to customize the template(s), which one(s)?

Any pointers will be appreciated! Thanks.


1. XMKMF and IMAKE want Imake.tmpl

I can't seem to compile any X11R5 stuff. My xmkmf and imake programs search
for a file called Imake.tmpl. I don't have one and would really like one. I
have installed on my machine Slackware 1.1.1 dist. and would like to know
what disk set this came on. If I am missing this file, I may be missing more.
I'd like to get everything covered. Anyone know where to find the file?
