This should be an easy one for someone here.

I was thinking about turning on pruning to save some disk space.  Do I need to recompile?  I don't recall seeing any options for pruning when I ran

Code:
$ ./configure help

last time I built bitcoind.  Alternatively, is this something I stick in my .conf file?

Pruning is a command line arg or a bitcoin.conf option. Just add
Code:
prune=550
to your bitcoin.conf file to enable pruning. There is no need to recompile it.
