This package now uses GNU autoconf to probe your system and generate the correct Makefile. However you may need to read it to check for values generated by the configure script. In particular, all the filenames, and path for binaries, log files, configuration files and so on are defined there. It is recommended to make use of the options described in the ``configure script'' section rather than to edit the generated Makefile. However, these options do not provide a total control over these values, in which case you need to directly edit the Makefile.
Now to build the package, type ``make all''. If everything goes will, you can then install it by typing ``make install''.
If you have trouble compiling ircd, copy Makefile.in to Makefile and edit Makefile as appropriate.
