Configuring GDB for Release
From the top level directory (containing `gdb', `bfd', `libiberty',
and so on):
make -f Makefile.in gdb.tar.Z
This will properly configure, clean, rebuild any files that are
distributed pre-built (e.g. `c-exp.tab.c' or `refcard.ps'), and will
then make a tarfile. (If the top level directory has already beenn
configured, you can just do `make gdb.tar.Z' instead.)
This procedure requires:
* symbolic links
* `makeinfo' (texinfo2 level)
* `yacc' or `bison'
... and the usual slew of utilities (`sed', `tar', etc.).
TEMPORARY RELEASE PROCEDURE FOR DOCUMENTATION
`gdb.texinfo' is currently marked up using the texinfo-2 macros,
which are not yet a default for anything (but we have to start using
For making paper, the only thing this implies is the right
generation of `texinfo.tex' needs to be included in the distribution.
For making info files, however, rather than duplicating the texinfo2
distribution, generate `gdb-all.texinfo' locally, and include the files
`gdb.info*' in the distribution. Note the plural; `makeinfo' will
split the document into one overall file and five or so included files.
