gnulib-tool

Adding gnulib-tool to your PATH

gnulib-tool must be run in the same directory which contains the Gnulib source code. To avoid having to use a full path to gnulib-tool, add it to your PATH variable; for example:

PATH=$PATH:~/software/projects/gnulib

Or, use a symbolic link to the gnulib-tool file from a place within your PATH; for example:

$ ln -s ~/software/projects/myproject/gnulib-tool ~/software/projects/gnulib/gnulib-tool
