The comment on this change is: changes for --prefix=.


  tar xvzf apache-couchdb-x.xx.x.tar.gz
  cd apache-couchdb-x.xx.x
  # Note: To install couchdb in the default location use --prefix= in the configure statement
- ./configure --with-js-lib=/usr/lib/xulrunner-devel- --with-js-include=/usr/lib/xulrunner-devel-
+ ./configure --prefix= --with-js-lib=/usr/lib/xulrunner-devel- --with-js-include=/usr/lib/xulrunner-devel-
  # Now you can compile and install couchdb
  make && make install
  # Add couchdb user account
- useradd -d /usr/local/var/lib/couchdb couchdb
+ useradd -d /var/lib/couchdb couchdb
- chown -R couchdb: /usr/local/var/lib/couchdb /usr/local/var/log/couchdb
+ chown -R couchdb: /var/lib/couchdb /usr/local/var/log/couchdb
  # start couchdb
- /usr/local/etc/init.d/couchdb start
+ /etc/init.d/couchdb start
- # then you have to create a symlink, so that the update-rc.d command is succesfull
- ln -s /usr/local/etc/init.d/couchdb /etc/init.d/couchdb
  # Start couchdb on system start
  update-rc.d couchdb defaults
