Suppose a library have been configured and compiled into /opt/name/ by root. Is there a way for me to see the options passed to ./configure when the program was first compiled and installed (short of finding the config.log)?

If not, is there a utility to automatically store configuration logs?

Check the Makefile file.

But the makefile is stored in the same directory as the source files, and there is no way to know where that is, and if that directory still exists –  user787267 Sep 24 '11 at 17:21
