$Id$

The following options can be given to configure:

Install directory
-----------------

autofs usually installs in /usr, with the daemon in /usr/sbin, the man
pages in /usr/man, and the modules in /usr/lib/autofs.  You can change
the install root with the option

	--prefix=<root_prefix>

For example, to install autofs under /usr/local, please specify:

	./configure --prefix=/usr/local

NOTICE TO DISTRIBUTORS: Don't use this option if you want to install
autofs in a temporary directory that isn't the final destination (for
example, if you are making an autofs package for a distribution.)
Instead, you can do

	make install INSTALLROOT=/tmp/install

... which will install all files relative to /tmp/install.

Hesiod support
--------------

To enable Hesiod support, if your Hesiod library isn't installed in
/usr/lib with the include files in /usr/include, please specify the
option:

	--with-hesiod=<hesiod_root>

For example, if your Hesiod library lives in /usr/athena/lib and the
include files in /usr/athena/include, please specify:

	./configure --with-hesiod=/usr/athena
