Building Racket in Linux

The Racket website has documentation on how to clone the PLT repository.

git clone git://git.racket-lang.org/plt.git

Next, the src/README file has all the gory details on how to build Racket. The procedure is rather straightforward for Linux:

mkdir build
cd build
../configure
make
make install

I'm yet to figure out how to successfully build racket in Visual C++ (2008 Professional), so that's the next item on my list.

Update (03/11/11): Actually rather straightforward for Visual C++ as well, run vsvars32.bat to ensure that devenv and other commands are in the path:

cd plt\src\worksp\
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\Common7\Tools\vsvars32.bat"
build

I got the hint from this thread.
