Compiling SDL_image does not produce .a files...


I cloned on a Linux system, then did:


but I can’t find any .a files anywhere in the cloned directory tree… Am I forced to make install? I don’t want that…

What I want is the static library to be in the tree of my project and not installed system wide…


Perhaps checking if there is a target named libs or lib on the produced Makefile?

find . -name "*.a" gives ./.libs/libSDL2_image.a so it’s in the .libs directory.
