Passing default configure parameters in subpackage

Recommended Posts



I placed a copy of each autoconfiscated third-party dependency of my software as a subdirectory. I then followed the instructions for building subpackages in autotools. However, there is a subpackage that needs to have certain parameters passed to its configure script. The macro AC_CONFIG_SUBDIRS passes the command line parameters to the configure script of each subpackage but I do not want the user to worry about the exact parameters to pass to configure.


My question now is how do I set the parameters to pass to configure in my subpackages?
