101 <para><command>sed -i ... termcaps/xterm</command>: The
102 <keysym>Home</keysym> and <keysym>End</keysym> keys are broken in the
103 <command>xterm</command> termcap file. This <command>sed</command> command
104 fixes them.</para>
105
106 <para><command>sed -i ... configure</command>: If you pass the
107 <option>--with-glX</option> parameter to the <command>configure</command>
108 script, <command>configure</command> will fail because it doesn't include
109 the <application>X Window System</application> library directory in the
110 <envar>LDFLAGS</envar> in one of the checks. This command adds the required
111 directory. This command is not required if your
112 <application>X Window System</application> libraries are located in
113 <filename class='directory'>/usr/lib</filename>.</para>
114
115 <para><command>sed -i ... src/Makefile.in</command>: For the same reason
116 the previous <command>sed</command> command is used, this one does a
117 similar modification to fix the <filename>Makefile</filename> used to
118 build the programs and library. This <command>sed</command> also fixes an
119 issue by adding the <filename class='libraryfile'>libncurses</filename>
120 library to the <envar>LDFLAGS</envar> for building the
121 <command>ssfe</command> program. This issue is also caused by passing the
122 additional parameters to the <command>configure</command> script.</para>
123
124 <para><parameter>--libexecdir=/usr/lib/vte</parameter>: This switch puts
125 libexec files in <filename class="directory">/usr/lib/vte</filename>
126 instead of <filename class="directory">/usr/libexec</filename>.</para>
127
128 <para><option>--with-xft2 --with-pangox --with-glX</option>: These
129 parameters can be passed to the <command>configure</command> script
130 to enable additional drawing methods in the
131 <application>VTE</application> library.</para>

133 <!-- Disabling as the docs are not built by default in this release and
134 the tarball contains current docs
135 <para><parameter>-disable-gtk-doc</parameter>: This switch prevents the
