See the prerequisites section for information on installing xmlsig dependencies.

There are two possible source distributions to build from. The first includes source for all supported scripting languages, and is run using makefiles. The second is a language specific source distribution built using the standard setup method for the language; "" for Python, "extconf.rb" for Ruby, "Makefile.PL" for Perl. The language specific source contains the generated wrapper code, so Swig is not required to build from this source.

If there is no makefile in the same directory as this README file, you are working from the language specific source distribution.
