To build from git sources you need to generate the configure script using the
autotools:
$ ./autogen.sh
To build from the released tarballs:
$ ./configure
$ make
$ make install
You may disable building some parts like documentation, btrfs-convert or
backtrace support. See ./configure --help for more.
Specific CFLAGS or LDFLAGS should be set like
$ CFLAGS=... LDFLAGS=... ./configure --prefix=/usr
and not as arguments to make.
