Subject [users@httpd] missing $DESTDIR in HTTPD 2.2.17
Date Mon, 25 Oct 2010 11:33:15 GMT

I usual make packages of HTTPD by myself for my Solaris 10 systems.
After successful compilation I do "DESTDIR=$TMPDIR gmake install" and
then make a package from the temporary dir.

In HTTPD 2.2.17 DESTDIR doesn't work throwing following error:

$ DESTDIR=$TMPDIR gmake install
...bunch lines skipped...
gmake[3]: Entering directory `/SOURCESDIR/httpd-2.2.17/srclib/apr-util/xml/expat'
/bin/bash ./conftools/mkinstalldirs /PREFIXDIR/lib /PREFIXDIR/include
mkdir /PREFIXDIR/include
mkdir: Failed to make directory "/PREFIXDIR/include"; Permission denied
gmake[3]: *** [installlib] Error 2
gmake[3]: Leaving directory `/SOURCESDIR/httpd-2.2.17/srclib/apr-util/xml/expat'
gmake[2]: *** [install] Error 2
gmake[2]: Leaving directory `/SOURCESDIR/httpd-2.2.17/srclib/apr-util'
gmake[1]: *** [install-recursive] Error 1
gmake[1]: Leaving directory `/SOURCESDIR/httpd-2.2.17/srclib'
gmake: *** [install-recursive] Error 1

PREFIXDIR is the value of "--prefix" key of configure. PREFIXDIR is a
directory where unprivileged user can't write.

My investigation pointed that srclib/apr-util/xml/expat/ of HTTPD 2.2.17
doesn't have DESTDIR in places where DESTDIR present in
srclib/apr-util/xml/expat/lib/ of HTTPD 2.2.16.

Is that a bug or feature?

If that matter, I use Sun Studio 12 and Solaris 10 environment to build
