X user tools, make, compiling source code

Post by jerry gu » Wed, 14 Jun 1995 04:00:00

I seem to be having a bit of a problem compiling source code with 'make'.
Previously I posted this problem with the misunderstanding that it was a
with 'make', or the source code from O'Reilly & Assoc source code on the
X User Tools CD-ROM. However, it appears this is simply my ignorance of 'make'
and 'imake'.
        My question now is, how do I setup 'make' and 'imake' to be able to
compile Unix source code to be LINUX specific?
        I find from reading the 'Makefiles', that the directory;
        /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/config contains files for configuring 'make' and 'imake'.
        Documentation in the form of man pages and HOWTOs has been scant and
not very helpful.
        I have copied the linux.cf file to generic.cf and have seen some progress,
however I am still not sure what to do with site.def and/or xfree.cf
files. Could someone elighten me as to what to do with what files, or at least
point me to a source of information?

1. Multi-user development source code control tool?

We have a small team starting a project, and need a multi-user source code
control system for OSF/1.  I am aware of RCS, but I've heard there are packages
that build upon it.  One mentioned was CVS, but I know nothing about it
(including it's location).

Can someone who's familiar with some of these tools point me in the right
direction and give some brief advice?
