Build the Google protobuf Library
Protocol Buffers, also known as protobuf, is Google's language-neutral, platform-neutral, extensible mechanism that is used to serialize structured data.
Build protobuf using the C++ installation instructions that you can find on the protobuf GitHub.
$ cd $BASEDIR/protobuf $ git submodule update --init --recursive $ ./autogen.sh $ ./configure --prefix=$BASEDIR/protobuf-host $ make
Arm has tested version 3.5.0. Some other versions might work.
Duration: About 15 minutes.
Next, copy the built program and its libraries and documentation to the correct locations using this command:
$ make install
