.SH NAME
jmkmf \- runs jmake with the correct options
.SH SYNOPSIS
.B jmkmf
[
.I top-level dir
[
.I current dir
]
]
.SH DESCRIPTION
.I Jmkmf
is a wrapper which calls
.I jmake
with the correct options, defining the symbols
.SM TOPDIR
(location of the top-level directory) and
.SM CURDIR
(current directory). The generated
.I Makefile.SH
is then ran through
.I /bin/sh
to produce a
.I Makefile.
.PP
.I Jmkmf
is useful when you generate a makefile for the first time.
.PP
When ran without arguments,
.I jmkmf
will scan the directories upwards, looking for a .package file marking
the top of your sources.  It will then derive the top-level directory
and the name of the current directory by itself.
.PP
Once you have a
.I Makefile.SH
generated by
.I jmake,
and have run Configure already, you can use
.I make Makefile.SH
to build the Makefile.SH again and
.I make Makefile
to run the Makefile.SH through
.I /bin/sh.
To use the recursive commands, you have to append an 's' at the
end of the name as in
.I make Makefiles.SH
and
.I make Makefiles.
