8.7 Operation Controls

configure recognizes the following options to control how it operates.

--cache-file=file

Use and save the results of the tests in file instead of ‘./config.cache’. Set file to ‘/dev/null’ to disable caching, for debugging configure.

--help

Print a summary of the options to configure, and exit.

--quiet
--silent
-q

Do not print messages saying which checks are being made.

--srcdir=dir

Look for the Bash source code in directory dir. Usually configure can determine that directory automatically.

--version

Print the version of Autoconf used to generate the configure script, and exit.

configure also accepts some other, not widely used, boilerplate options. ‘configure --help’ prints the complete list.
