12.10. Including C Code
A PEAR package may include C or C++ code as well as PHP code. The PEAR Installer will run the extension build process if there are one or more files with the role=src.
12.10.1. Element: <configureoptions>
This is a wrapper element for one or more <configureoption> elements.
12.10.2. Element: <configureoption>
This element is for collecting build parameters on UNIX when building extension binaries. Typically, each extension has one or more configure options that may be specified here.
188.8.131.52 name Attribute
The configureoption name attribute corresponds to the name of the configure option, without any dashes in front. For example, if the name attribute is with-foobar, it is passed on to configure as --with-fobar.
184.108.40.206 default Attribute
This attribute is used only as a brief description of the default behavior, when the --name option is used without a parameter (with a parameter, it would be --name=param).

This attribute contains a prompt that is displayed during install.
