Building GT3

Building GT3 is fairly straight forward. Here are the steps:

1.
Download the full source GT3 package from the Globus website into /l/esysadm/download/noarch/.
2.
Create a new directory called /l/esysadm/build/arch/globus/version-number/, where arch is either ``solaris'' or ``linux'' and version-number is, e.g., 3.0.1. Change the ownership of this directory to user globus. Do the rest of these instructions as user globus.
3.
Unpack the source code tar ball into this directory:
tar zxvf /l/esysadm/download/noarch/gt3.0.1-source-installer.tar.gz
4.
Change into the directory of the source installer. Comment out the last line of the install-gt3 file that calls gpt-postinstall. In other words, the last line should look like:
# $GPT_LOCATION/sbin/gpt-postinstall
5.
Set environment variable JAVA_HOME to a JDK of 1.4.1 or higher and add $JAVA_HOME/bin to your PATH.
6.
Likewise, set ANT_HOME to /l/local/packages/jakarta-ant/1.5.3-1, and add it to your PATH.
7.
(For Solaris only) Append /usr/local/gnu/bin and /usr/ccs/bin to your PATH, in that order. It's important to use the Solaris ld and to use GNU's sed. (This may or may not be an issue any more.)
8.
Make sure to use gcc 3.2.2 (or higher?). Here gcc 3.2.2 is installed under /l/gcc322. Add the bin directory to your PATH and add the lib directory to your LD_LIBRARY_PATH.
9.
Now run ./install-gt3 ../deploy. This will install GT3 into
/l/esysadm/build/arch/globus/version-number/deploy. Note that this step will take several hours.

That concludes the build process.
