+How to configure gitweb for your local system
+---------------------------------------------
+
+You can specify the following configuration variables when building GIT:
+
+ * GIT_BINDIR
+ Points where to find the git executable. You should set it up to
+ the place where the git binary was installed (usually /usr/bin) if you
+ don't install git from sources together with gitweb. [Default: $(bindir)]
+ * GITWEB_SITENAME
+ Shown in the title of all generated pages, defaults to the server name
+ (SERVER_NAME CGI environment variable) if not set. [No default]
+ * GITWEB_PROJECTROOT
+ The root directory for all projects shown by gitweb. Must be set
+ correctly for gitweb to find repositories to display. See also
+ "Gitweb repositories" in the INSTALL file for gitweb. [Default: /pub/git]
+ * GITWEB_PROJECT_MAXDEPTH
+ The filesystem traversing limit for getting the project list; the number
+ is taken as depth relative to the projectroot. It is used when
+ GITWEB_LIST is a directory (or is not set; then project root is used).
+ This is meant to speed up project listing on large work trees by limiting
+ search depth. [Default: 2007]
+ * GITWEB_LIST
+ Points to a directory to scan for projects (defaults to project root
+ if not set / if empty) or to a file with explicit listing of projects
+ (together with projects' ownership). See "Generating projects list
+ using gitweb" in INSTALL file for gitweb to find out how to generate
+ such file from scan of a directory. [No default, which means use root
+ directory for projects]
+ * GITWEB_EXPORT_OK
+ Show repository only if this file exists (in repository). Only
+ effective if this variable evaluates to true. [No default / Not set]
+ * GITWEB_STRICT_EXPORT
+ Only allow viewing of repositories also shown on the overview page.
+ This for example makes GITWEB_EXPORT_OK to decide if repository is
+ available and not only if it is shown. If GITWEB_LIST points to
+ file with list of project, only those repositories listed would be
+ available for gitweb. [No default]
+ * GITWEB_HOMETEXT
+ Points to an .html file which is included on the gitweb project
+ overview page ('projects_list' view), if it exists. Relative to
+ gitweb.cgi script. [Default: indextext.html]
+ * GITWEB_SITE_HEADER
+ Filename of html text to include at top of each page. Relative to
+ gitweb.cgi script. [No default]
+ * GITWEB_SITE_FOOTER
+ Filename of html text to include at bottom of each page. Relative to
+ gitweb.cgi script. [No default]
+ * GITWEB_HOME_LINK_STR
+ String of the home link on top of all pages, leading to $home_link
+ (usually main gitweb page, which means projects list). Used as first
+ part of gitweb view "breadcrumb trail": <home> / <project> / <view>.
+ [Default: projects]
+ * GITWEB_SITENAME
+ Name of your site or organization to appear in page titles. Set it
+ to something descriptive for clearer bookmarks etc. If not set
+ (if empty) gitweb uses "$SERVER_NAME Git", or "Untitled Git" if
+ SERVER_NAME CGI environment variable is not set (e.g. if running
+ gitweb as standalone script). [No default]
+ * GITWEB_BASE_URL
+ Git base URLs used for URL to where fetch project from, i.e. full
+ URL is "$git_base_url/$project". Shown on projects summary page.
+ Repository URL for project can be also configured per repository; this
+ takes precedence over URLs composed from base URL and a project name.
+ Note that you can setup multiple base URLs (for example one for
+ git:// protocol access, another for http:// access) from the gitweb
+ config file. [No default]
+ * GITWEB_CSS
+ Points to the location where you put gitweb.css on your web server
+ (or to be more generic, the URI of gitweb stylesheet). Relative to the
+ base URI of gitweb. Note that you can setup multiple stylesheets from
+ the gitweb config file. [Default: static/gitweb.css (or
+ static/gitweb.min.css if the CSSMIN variable is defined / CSS minifier
+ is used)]
+ * GITWEB_LOGO
+ Points to the location where you put git-logo.png on your web server
+ (or to be more generic URI of logo, 72x27 size, displayed in top right
+ corner of each gitweb page, and used as logo for Atom feed). Relative
+ to base URI of gitweb. [Default: static/git-logo.png]
+ * GITWEB_FAVICON
+ Points to the location where you put git-favicon.png on your web server
+ (or to be more generic URI of favicon, assumed to be image/png type;
+ web browsers that support favicons (website icons) may display them
+ in the browser's URL bar and next to site name in bookmarks). Relative
+ to base URI of gitweb. [Default: static/git-favicon.png]
+ * GITWEB_JS
+ Points to the location where you put gitweb.js on your web server
+ (or to be more generic URI of JavaScript code used by gitweb).
+ Relative to base URI of gitweb. [Default: static/gitweb.js (or
+ static/gitweb.min.js if JSMIN build variable is defined / JavaScript
+ minifier is used)]
+ * GITWEB_CONFIG
+ This Perl file will be loaded using 'do' and can be used to override any
+ of the options above as well as some other options -- see the "Runtime
+ gitweb configuration" section below, and top of 'gitweb.cgi' for their
+ full list and description. If the environment variable GITWEB_CONFIG
+ is set when gitweb.cgi is executed, then the file specified in the
+ environment variable will be loaded instead of the file specified
+ when gitweb.cgi was created. [Default: gitweb_config.perl]
+ * GITWEB_CONFIG_SYSTEM
+ This Perl file will be loaded using 'do' as a fallback if GITWEB_CONFIG
+ does not exist. If the environment variable GITWEB_CONFIG_SYSTEM is set
+ when gitweb.cgi is executed, then the file specified in the environment
+ variable will be loaded instead of the file specified when gitweb.cgi was
+ created. [Default: /etc/gitweb.conf]
+ * HIGHLIGHT_BIN
+ Path to the highlight executable to use (must be the one from
+ http://www.andre-simon.de due to assumptions about parameters and output).
+ Useful if highlight is not installed on your webserver's PATH.
+ [Default: highlight]
