The PBC library needs the GMP library. Multiple ways to install PBC are provided.

GNU Build System (autotools)

This build system has been tested and works on Linux and Mac OS X with a fink installation.

$ ./configure
$ make
$ make install

On Windows, the configure command requires a couple of options:

$ ./configure -disable-static -enable-shared

By default the library is installed in /usr/local/lib. On some systems, this may not be in the library path. One way to fix this is to edit /etc/ld.so.conf and run ldconfig.
