7to/from another trace format.

56This source tree is based on the autotools suite from GNU to simplify
57portability. Here are some things you should have on your system in order to
58compile the git repository tree :
59
76fb4848 60- GNU autotools (automake >=1.10, autoconf >=2.50, autoheader >=2.50)
efc652bd 61 (make sure your system wide "automake" points to a recent version!)
0f71b863 62- GNU Libtool >=2.2
efc652bd 63 (for more information, go to http://www.gnu.org/software/autoconf/)

MD
64- Flex >=2.5.35.
65- Bison >=2.4.

67If you get the tree from the repository, you will need to use the "bootstrap"
68script in the root of the tree. It calls all the GNU tools needed to prepare the
69tree configuration.
