Without a  ./configure  script (and adding "--prefix=/usr/local") but just a  Makefile , I do:

Code: [Select]
make
...
make DESTDIR=/tmp/app install
...

What if the resulting path is  /tmp/app/bin  instead of  /tmp/app/usr/local/bin ?
Is there another common way to define the path without a configure script?


Thanks.

then you just change the path directly in the Makefile.

Well, a quick look at the Makefile made me beleive it's using variables for finding libs but the sollution actually was (without editing the Makefile):

Code: [Select]
make
...
make PREFIX=/usr/local DESTDIR=/tmp/app install
...

Thanks, hiro!
