15.7 Transforming Program Names When Installing

Autoconf supports changing the names of programs when installing them. In order to use these transformations, must call the macro AC_ARG_PROGRAM.


Place in output variable program_transform_name a sequence of sed commands for changing the names of installed programs.

If any of the options described below are given to configure, program names are transformed accordingly. Otherwise, if AC_CANONICAL_TARGET has been called and a --target value is given, the target type followed by a dash is used as a prefix. Otherwise, no program name transformation is done.
