Configuration parameters
Authored by: Velociped on Jan 03, '02 12:31:29PM
"The options after the ./configure command need to be placed on the same line as ./configure, with a space between each argument."

While the aforementioned is true, there is another option...

Using a <space> "\" (backslash) at the end of each line will allow one to distribute the parameters across several lines - as displayed in the hint.

e.g.

% ./configure \
--prefix=/usr \
--localstatedir=/private/var \
--sysconfdir=/private/etc \
--mandir=/usr/share/man \
--infodir=~/.Trash \
--with-gssapi=/usr \
--enable-encryption
