Subject [users@httpd] Makefiles in subprojects have non-overridable install paths
Date Tue, 28 Jun 2005 19:45:20 GMT
Hello.  I have httpd-2.0.54 source and am building on MAC OS X Tiger. 
Here is what I have done...

1.  ./configure --enable-layout=RedHat
2.  vi srclib/apr-util/Makefile, where I see that libdir is set to

Now, I'd like to "make install prefix=/tmp/foo" (building an RPM), but
this won't work, since libdir is not $prefix/lib or some such.  Now, if
I "make distclean" at the top, then cd apr-util and do a configure
(after configuring apr, yes, and using --with-apr=), then the resulting
Makefile has libdir set to "${prefix}/lib", which I what I want.

So, can the gurus tell me if I am missing something or if this is a bug
(in my understanding?)?  I am not familiar enough with the tools and
sources to know.
