DESCRIPTION

gpt-config is a runtime configuration script that is used to localize a GPT installation. GPT uses various programs and packaging parameters to do its job. These items can be listed and modified by this script.

Configuration information for GPT is stored in the module $GPT_LOCATION/lib/perl/Grid/GPT/LocalEnv.pm. This module is regenerated when gpt-config is used to change the configuration.  

OPTIONS

-builddir
Specifies the where the source tar files should be untarred and the code is built.
-location
-perl
-gtar
-gunzip
-gmake
-rpm
-rpmbuild
Location of various programs that GPT uses. These switches will override any searching done by the -probe switch..
-license
-vendor
-ftpsite
-url
-packager
-prefix
Values that are used by GPT when generating RPM packages. These values are not configured when the platform does not support RPM.
-list
List the current configuration.
-probe
Probe for the various programs that GPT needs. The probe examines each directory listed in the $PATH variable for these programs.
-use-archive-tar
Skip the probes for a system tar and unzip programs. Use Archive::Tar module to untar source packages. Using this modules slows down the build noticably.
-ignore
Ignore any missing programs and continue with the configuring.
