Fine, if you do not want years of bug fixes.

To get it to work as gpsdebuginfo wants, yes.  To get it to work for
most purposes, no.

Try this: gpspipe -w -n 20

See the files INSTALL.adoc and build.adoc

That s the easiest way.

A good start.

If you read the INSTALL.adoc and build.adoc, you will see some of those,
not all, are optional, and why.

If you want to build from git and not tarball.

If you read the INSTALL.adoc and build.adoc, you will see.
