D.7 How do I build XBoard? Do I need gcc?

The first step to building XBoard is to get the distribution file. See
topic [A.3] for places you can ftp the software from.

Next, decide what directory tree you are going to install XBoard in. The
default is /usr/local, but you probably don't have write access to that
directory unless you are a system administrator. If you do, type the
following to install it there:

gzip -cd xboard-*.tar.gz | tar -xvf -
cd xboard-*/
configure
make
su
make install

If you want to install xboard in your personal home directory
($HOME/bin), type this:

gzip -cd xboard-*.tar.gz | tar -xvf -
cd xboard-*/
configure --prefix=$HOME
make
make install

If the first step above fails because you don't have gzip, see topic
[A.3] , and ask a local Unix expert if you need more help. If you have
any problems with the last two steps, read the READ_ME and INSTALL files
in the xboard-*/ directory. You will also find this FAQ there.

You don't need to have gcc to build XBoard, and your C compiler doesn't
have to be ANSI-compliant.
