    % ./configure
    You can specify various options. Use -h option to see them. By default, LiLFeS is installed under /usr/local, so it is required that you have write privileges for that directory. if you don't have root privileges, it's possible to install the system into your home directory.

    --prefix=$HOME/lilfes

  3. Install the executable, libraries and documentations.
