3.2.1. What is Appcompile?

Appcompile is a helper program to build applications from source-code. It will automatically detect the build-system, configure it (applying the necessary flags and custom ones), then build the applicatio and install it into a user-defined directory, so Listaller can use the binaries to generate an IPK package.
