COMPILING THE APPLICATIONS/LIBRARIES:
  The build system used is similar to autotools. Building generally consists of
  "configuring" with your desired build options, then using GNU make to build
  the application.

  1. Prerequisites

    * All x86 targets require the Yasm[1] assembler be installed.
    * All Windows builds require that Cygwin[2] be installed.

    * Building the documentation requires Doxygen[3]. If you do not
      have this package, the install-docs option will be disabled.
    * Downloading the data for the unit tests requires curl[4] and sha1sum.
17 18 19
      sha1sum is provided via the GNU coreutils, installed by default on
      many *nix platforms, as well as MinGW and Cygwin. If coreutils is not
      available, a compatible version of sha1sum can be built from

      source[5]. These requirements are optional if not running the unit

      tests.

  2. Out-of-tree builds
  Out of tree builds are a supported method of building the application. For
  an out of tree build, the source tree is kept separate from the object
  files produced during compilation. For instance:

    $ mkdir build
    $ cd build
    $ ../libvpx/configure <options>
    $ make

  3. Configuration options
  The 'configure' script supports a number of options. The --help option can be
  used to get a list of supported options:
    $ ../libvpx/configure --help

  4. Cross development
  For cross development, the most notable option is the --target option. The
  most up-to-date list of supported targets can be found at the bottom of the
  --help output of the configure script. As of this writing, the list of
  available targets is:

    generic-gnu

  The generic-gnu target, in conjunction with the CROSS environment variable,
  can be used to cross compile architectures that aren't explicitly listed, if
  the toolchain is a cross GNU (gcc/binutils) toolchain. Other POSIX toolchains
  will likely work as well. For instance, to build using the mipsel-linux-uclibc
  toolchain, the following command could be used (note, POSIX SH syntax, adapt
  to your shell as necessary):

  In addition, the executables to be invoked can be overridden by specifying the
  environment variables: CC, AR, LD, AS, STRIP, NM. Additional flags can be
  passed to these executables with CFLAGS, LDFLAGS, and ASFLAGS.

  5. Configuration errors
  If the configuration step fails, the first step is to look in the error log.
119
  This defaults to config.log. This should give a good indication of what went

  wrong. If not, contact us for support.

VP8/VP9 TEST VECTORS:
  The test vectors can be downloaded and verified using the build system after
  running configure. To specify an alternate directory the
  LIBVPX_TEST_DATA_PATH environment variable can be used.

  $ ./configure --enable-unit-tests
  $ LIBVPX_TEST_DATA_PATH=../libvpx-test-data make testdata
