47This source tree is based on the autotools suite from GNU to simplify
48portability. Here are some things you should have on your system in order to
49compile the git repository tree :
50
76fb4848 51- GNU autotools (automake >=1.10, autoconf >=2.50, autoheader >=2.50)

52 (make sure your system wide "automake" points to a recent version!)
53- GNU Libtool
54 (for more information, go to http://www.gnu.org/software/autoconf/)

55- Flex >=2.5.35.
56- Bison >=2.4.

58If you get the tree from the repository, you will need to use the "bootstrap"
59script in the root of the tree. It calls all the GNU tools needed to prepare the
60tree configuration.
