Hi All,


I am new to Automake tools. I am going to ask a very common use scenario.
Please point me to relevant articles if it is already discussed.


I have a definition of a variable like this in the source file:

SD_BASE_DIR = $(srcdir)/../../../../..

Obviously "SD_BASE_DIR" definition works only in my developing environment

I want to override this variable at ./configure time. Example:
../configure SD_BASE_DIR ="/home/chetan/SD"

When I provide my source to some other developer, he just has to re- define SD_BASE_DIR variable to point to his source base directory location. I am not finding out how to do it. It is a very common scenario, so I am sure
there must be a way out.. but it is not obvious to me.

Simply add:

To your and use $(SD_BASE_DIR) in your's.
