       xmkmf - create a Makefile from an Imakefile

       xmkmf [ -a ] [ topdir [ curdir ] ]

       The  xmkmf  command  is the normal way to create a Makefile from an Imakefile shipped with
       third-party software.

       When invoked with no arguments in a directory containing an Imakefile, the  imake  program
       is run with arguments appropriate for your system (configured into xmkmf when X was built)
       and generates a Makefile.

       When invoked with the -a option, xmkmf builds the Makefile in the current  directory,  and
       then  automatically executes ``make Makefiles'' (in case there are subdirectories), ``make
       includes'', and ``make depend'' for you.  This is the normal  way  to  configure  software
       that is outside the X Consortium build tree.

       If working inside the X Consortium build tree (unlikely unless you are an X developer, and
       even then this option is never really used), the topdir argument should	be  specified  as
       the  relative  pathname	from the current directory to the top of the build tree.  Option-
       ally, curdir may be specified as a relative pathname from the top of the build tree to the
       current	directory.   It is necessary to supply curdir if the current directory has subdi-
       rectories, or the Makefile will not be able to build the subdirectories.  If a  topdir  is
       given,  xmkmf assumes nothing is installed on your system and looks for files in the build
       tree instead of using the installed versions.
