how do you find out how a package was configured or compiled

Asked by DigiAngel on 2011-12-17

I won't to recompile squid with ssl. I would rather..."highjack" the existing package instead, so I just want to recompile from source exactly the same way, but with ssl. What's the configure line that was used?

http://wiki.squid-cache.org/DeveloperResources . See the section "Required Build Tools".

Ah...yes...this gives me the general overview, but how, specifically, is squid configured? What ./configure options were given? Thank you.

Checkout the package from the source repository. The exact build scripts are in the debian/rules file.

You can grab a copy for your system with

apt-get source NAMEOFPACKAGE

note that you must have a source repository enabled (use software-sources, or modify your sources.list to do this)

Excellent...didn't know about the rules file..just what I needed. Thank you.
