[Sawfish] sawfish 1.9.0 and --prefix

[ Thread Index | Date Index | More lists.tuxfamily.org/sawfish Archives ]

There's a problem with the --prefix option to ./configure in the sawfish-1.9.0 release. Makedefs does

include $(repexecdir)/rules.mk

_after_ recording the user's choice of prefix for installing sawfish, which thereby gets overwritten.

I configured sawfish with --prefix=/opt/sawfish and was surprised (to say the least) that "make install" ignored this and put everything under /usr (/usr being the location of librep).
