→Building Protocol Buffers From Source
==== Building Protocol Buffers From Source ====
If you would like to build from source instead of using a package, the Protocol Buffer library can be found at http://code.google.com/p/protobuf/, while the Protocol Buffer C bindings can be found at http://code.google.com/p/protobuf-c/. You can use the following commands to obtain the source code repositories via <code>git</code>. Note that when cross compiling you will need to compile once for your build machine in order to get a <code>protoc</code> binary to use in the build process, and build once for each target machine to generate <code>libprotobuf.so</code>.
git svn clone http://protobuf.googlecode.com/svn/trunk protobuf
