UNIX-like systems and OS/2 EMX

To build the source code on a UNIX-like operating system, do this (assuming you've already changed into directory that contains the source):

cd gnu;autoconf;./configure;cd ..;make prepare;make


1. GNU make must be used (on FreeBSD systems it's called "gmake").
2. You have to run autoconf prior to running configure - as there will be different configure scripts for UNIX-like systems and OS/2 EMX.
3. On OS/2 EMX, autoconf v 2.57 is confirmed to work.
4. You can finalize the build process with "make install" (to perform a local installation) or "make package" (to create a self-extracting distribution kit).

ARJ is a CPU-intensive program. If you wish to configure ARJ for a higher performance on a specific CPU, try the following, assuming that you have a newer version of GCC, e.g. 3.2.1:

./configure CFLAGS="-march=i386 -mcpu=athlon-xp"

where "-mcpu" designates the type of your CPU, run "man gcc" for a list of CPU types.
