BUILDING THE DHCP DISTRIBUTION
To build the DHCP Distribution, type ``configure''. If configure can
figure out what sort of system you're running on, it will create a
custom Makefile for you for that system; otherwise, it will complain.
If it can't figure out what system you are using, that system is not
supported - you are on your own.
Once you've run configure, just type ``make'', and after a while you
should have a dhcp server. If you get compile errors on one of the
supported systems mentioned earlier, please let us know. If you get
errors on a system not mentioned above, you will need to do some
programming or debugging on your own to get the DHCP Distribution working.
To build the DHCP Distribution, unpack the compressed tar file using
the tar utility and the gzip command - type something like:
zcat dhcp-2.0b1pl6.tar.gz |tar xvf -
Now, cd to the dhcp-2.0b1pl6 subdirectory that you've just created and
configure the source tree by typing:
./configure

If you get warnings, it's not likely to be a problem - the DHCP
server compiles completely warning-free on as many architectures
as we can manage, but there are a few for which this is difficult.
If you get errors on a system not mentioned above, you will need
to do some programming or debugging on your own to get the DHCP
Distribution working.
Once you have successfully gotten the DHCP Distribution to build, you
can install it by typing ``make install''. If you already have an old
