Some time ago, I wrote a sketch of a local compilation and installation of
asymptote in (what I believe to be) a TeXLive compatible way. This was back in 2010 (ubuntu 10.10 and TeXLive vanilla 2010). The steps were:
sudo apt-get install subversion autoconf gcc g++ bison flex make libzip-dev zlib1g-dev cdbs debhelper libfftw3-dev libreadline5-dev libncurses5-dev libgsl0-dev libsigsegv-dev freeglut3 freeglut3-dev texinfo wget http://mirror.ctan.org/graphics/asymptote.zip unzip asymptote.zip cd asymptote ./configure --with-latex=$HOME/texmf/tex/latex --with-context=$HOME/texmf/tex/context/third --datadir=$HOME/texmf --prefix=$HOME --datarootdir=$HOME/texmf/doc --with-docdir=$HOME/texmf/doc/asymptote LC_ALL=POSIX make all
Those lines copy the binaries in $HOME/bin, the required asymptote files in $HOME/texmf/asymptote, the documentation in $HOME/texmf/doc/asymptote and the .sty in $HOME/texmf/tex/latex.
- Is it the/a right way to do?
- Dependencies for asymptote seems to have changed over the year: where can I find an extensive list of what is needed to compile asymptote (with full options, that is with the gnu scientific library and fft)? A "big" list of debian and/or arch packages would be great.
