Subject Couchdb build on Centos 5.7 picking up /usr/ and not /usr/local
Date Wed, 09 Nov 2011 15:22:43 GMT
I am trying to build CouchDB 1.1.1 on Centos 5.7.

To do this I have to build curl 7.22.0 and erlang otp_src_R13B04 to meet the pre-reqs. This
I have done successfully. However they install in /usr/local whereas the couchdb configure
script is currently looking in ./usr.

I have managed to get the configure script to work using:

sudo ./configure --with-erlang=/usr/local/lib/erlang/erts-5.7.5/include --enable-js-trunk

but when I run sudo make I now get:

/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -l/usr/local/include/lib/libcurl

And this file/directory does not exist except in the Curl distribution and that contains pdf/html

I have successfully done this build on a Centos 5.6, but can't see where I'm going wrong on
5.7. The /usr/local/include/lib/libcurl does not exit on the Centos 5.6 centos build either,
but this built.

Any help gratefully received, as I'm very confused!
