Autotools Options

The most up-to-date options can be found with ./configure --help.

Autotools configure script options

Flag Explanation
--enable-static[=PKGS] Build static libraries. [default=yes]
--enable-dependency-tracking Do not reject slow dependency extractors.
--disable-dependency-tracking Speeds up one-time build.
--enable-silent-rules Less verbose build output (undo: "make V=1").
--disable-silent-rules Verbose build output (undo: "make V=0").
--disable-maintainer-mode Disable make rules and dependencies not useful (and sometimes confusing) to the casual installer.
--enable-shared[=PKGS] Build shared libraries. [default=yes]
--enable-fast-install[=PKGS] Optimize for fast installation. [default=yes]
--enable-gc-unused Enable garbage collection of unused program segments. This option significantly reduces the size of the final build artifacts. [default=no]
--disable-libtool-lock Avoid locking. Note that this might break parallel builds.
--disable-bundled Configures Mesos to build against preinstalled dependencies instead of bundled libraries.
--disable-bundled-pip Excludes building and using the bundled pip package in lieu of an installed version in PYTHONPATH.
--disable-bundled-setuptools Excludes building and using the bundled setuptools package in lieu of an installed version in PYTHONPATH.
--disable-bundled-wheel Excludes building and using the bundled wheel package in lieu of an installed version in PYTHONPATH.
--enable-debug Whether debugging is enabled. If CFLAGS/CXXFLAGS are set, this option won't change them. [default=no]
--disable-java Don't build Java bindings.
--enable-libevent Use libevent instead of libev for the libprocess event loop. Note that the libevent version 2+ development package is required. [default=no]
--enable-install-module-dependencies Install third-party bundled dependencies required for module development. [default=no]
--enable-optimize Whether optimizations are enabled. If CFLAGS/CXXFLAGS are set, this option won't change them. [default=no]
--enable-perftools Whether profiling with Google perftools is enabled. [default=no]
--enable-parallel-test-execution Whether to attempt to run tests in parallel.
--disable-python Don't build Python bindings.
--disable-python-dependency-install When the python packages are installed during make install, no external dependencies will be downloaded or installed.
--enable-ssl Enable SSL for libprocess communication. Note that --enable-libevent is currently required for SSL functionality. [default=no]
--enable-static-unimplemented Generate static assertion errors for unimplemented functions. [default=no]
--enable-tests-install Build and install tests and their helper tools. [default=no]
--enable-xfs-disk-isolator Builds the XFS disk isolator. [default=no]
--disable-zlib Disables zlib compression, which means the webui will be far less responsive; not recommended.
--enable-lock-free-event-queue Enables the lock-free event queue to be used in libprocess which greatly improves message passing performance!
--disable-werror Disables treating compiler warnings as fatal errors.
