Stream: Coq devs & plugin devs

Topic: ./configure -local no longer exists, what to use now?

Until recently (at least Coq 8.13), I used to build Coq as follows:

cd folder_with_coq_sources
./configure -local
make

And then a Coq binary would appear in the folder_with_coq_sources/bin directory. Since Coq 8.15 the -local option of configure no longer seems to exist. What is the alternative way to make a simple local build?

Thanks!

this is clearly a Coq dev question, so moving to that stream

Well, the point of the question is precisely that users used to rely on this (even though from the point of view of developers, this was a developer option).

This exact same question was also asked here BTW: https://coq.discourse.group/t/how-to-use-a-local-installation-of-coq/1507
