Standard procedure for compiling and installing packages from source:
First, check out the documentation ( README, INSTALL...). Mostly, from there
on, it's ./configure && make && make install. If you have special needs,
first do a ./configure --help to check out some special options or features.
Defaults are most of the time sensible (I configured glib-1.2.10 with
./configure --disable-debug && make && make install).
If make produces any errors and stops, search the mailing archives (see
www.linuxfromscratch.org ), and if that doesn't help, send a mail.
For programs with no hints, you can assume the compilation is either the
above procedure, or (unlikely) nobody has bothered to write a hint for it.
BTW questions about programs not included in the book should go to
lfs-apps at linuxfromscratch.org !
Hope this helps
