6.18. Findutils-4.4.2

The Findutils package contains programs to find files. These programs are provided to recursively search through a directory tree and to create, maintain, and search a database (often faster than the recursive find, but unreliable if the database has not been recently updated).

6.18.1. Installation of Findutils

The following cache entries set the values for tests that do not run while cross-compiling:

echo "gl_cv_func_wcwidth_works=yes" > config.cache
echo "ac_cv_func_fnmatch_gnu=yes" >> config.cache

Prepare Findutils for compilation:

./configure --prefix=/tools \
    --build=${CLFS_HOST} --host=${CLFS_TARGET} \

Compile the package:


Install the package:

make install

Details on this package are located in Section 10.62.2, “Contents of Findutils.”
