A second set of volume descriptors and directory tree+tables gets created
which can be used to mount the image at the partition start.

On GNU/Linux it will try to run program ldconfig with the library installation
directory as only argument. Failure to do so will not abort installation.
One may disable ldconfig by ./configure option --disable-ldconfig-at-install .
By use of a version script, the libisofs.so library exposes no other function
names but those of the API definitions in <libisofs/libisofs.h>.
If -Wl,--version-script=... makes problems with the local compiler, then
disable this encapsulation feature by
./configure --disable-versioned-libs
make clean ; make
The ./configure script checks for the availability of supporting libraries.
If found, they will become mandatory for the emerging libisofs.so and all
applications which use it. This dependency can be avoided by configure options
--disable-libacl avoid use of ACL functions like acl_to_text()
--disable-xattr avoid use of xattr functions like listxattr()
--disable-zlib avoid use of zlib functions like compress2()
See INSTALL file for general options of ./configure.
