To build individual Harvest components (such as the Gatherer or the Broker), change into the src directory. If you wish to change the default installation from /usr/local/harvest, then edit the Makefile there and type make reconfigure to propagate the change. Finally, to build the Harvest component type make component, and to install the built component, type make install-component, where valid component names are broker, cache, gatherer, indexer, or replicator. For example, to build the Harvest Gatherer, type:
% cd src % vi Makefile (only if changing the prefix) % make reconfigure (only if prefix was changed) % make gatherer install-gatherer
If you have problems compiling the software on your system, make sure you are using one of the supported platforms and compiler listed in Section 3.1.2.
