EMBOSS: C2 Installation

We have provided an installation script "make-all-static" with the EMBOSS Beta distribution.

The script is a work around for the PLPLOT graphics library which has a hand-crafted "./configure" script.

We are working on replacing this with automake and autoconf for PLPLOT. If we succeed, EMBOSS will build with "./configure" and "make".

Other packages that link to EMBOSS will have their usual installation procedures modified to include linking to EMBOSS libraries.


  1. Is the installation procedure working?
  2. What additional help can be provided?
