You will need the following tools if you plan to use the SVN version of vlc:
- autoconf version 2.50 or later
- automake version 1.5 (but 1.6 or later is recommended)
- gettext version 0.10.40 (but 0.11.3 or later is recommended)
- perl version 5.005 or later
- Autoconf version 2.60 or later
- Automake version 1.9 or later
- gettext version 0.11.5 or later
- pkg-config
- libgcrypt 1.2 (or compatible)
After retrieving the SVN tree, you need to run the bootstrap script to
generate all the files needed to build vlc. You can then run configure.

A typical way to configure VLC is:
./configure --prefix=/usr --enable-wxwidgets
./configure --prefix=/usr
See `./configure --help' for more information.
If you intend to debug stuff, you may want to compile with debugging
symbols:
make distclean ; ./configure --prefix=/usr --enable-wxwidgets --enable-debug
make distclean ; ./configure --prefix=/usr --enable-debug
We recommend using GCC (versions 3.3 or later) to build VLC, though some
people reported success with the Intel C compiler (version 8) as well. As of
VLC version 0.9.0, GCC 2.95 is not supported anymore; if this is the default
compiler on your system (e.g. FreeBSD 4.x), please select a more recent
version manually by setting the CC and CXX environment variables

recent version manually by setting the CC and CXX environment variables
appropriately while running the ./configure shell script.
Building VLC
============
Have a look at the generated Makefile.opts file, you may want to choose
which modules will be compiled as plugins, and which ones will remain in
the core application. The configure script tries to guess for you.
Once configured, run `make' to build VLC.
