\page bs_page Singular Build System

\brief Short introduction to the Singular build system

We use autotools.
Here is a good autotools (mythbuster) manual:
<https://www.flameeyes.eu/autotools-mythbuster/>
Singular consists of several packages,
which are (mostly standalone) libraries with their own configuration scripts:

- \ref omalloc_page
- \ref resources_page
- \ref factory_page
- \ref libpolys_page
- \ref singular_page

Moreover some of the top-level libraries combine smaller ones into
itself:
- \ref libpolys_page
  - \ref libpolys_misc_page
  - \ref libpolys_reporter_page
  - \ref libpolys_coeffs_page
  - \ref libpolys_polys_page
- \ref singular_page
  - \ref kernel_page
  - \ref dynmodules_page


One can easily exted any existing library by adding new sources to the
corresponding _SOURCE specification (and headers to _HEADER).
Sources or headers may be generated by the build system
(automatically by configure scripts, manually in compile time by
targets in makefiles) but have to be treated specially.

Short HOWTO:
- \subpage adding_kernel_package "Adding a sub-package to /kernel/"


New sub-libraries may be added to the existing directories (to the
corresponding Makefile.am's) or to their own (new) directory
with a new Makefile.am, which has to be treated by the corresponding
configure script. If that new directory has to be treated by
recursive make  - it has to be listed in in a SUBDIRS section
by some higher-level Makefile.am (which is treated)


It is strongly recommended to add separate unit-tests (TESTS) for any
package or library.

Please test the build system with `make distcheck` before submitting
in case of a build system chenges.
