#130 cannot easily change configure --prefix
Opened 7 years ago by mkosek. Modified 2 years ago


Description of problem:
If I configure with one prefix, then want to change it, references to the old
prefix remain

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. ./configure --prefix=/scratch/fedora-ds/prefix
2. ./configure --prefix=/data/fedora-ds/prefix
3. make install

Actual results:
scripts like ds_newinst cannot find ds_newinst-bin

Expected results:
configure should recreate all prefix dependent files, or make should have these
depend on configure's output.

Additional info:
The only way I found out that ds_newinst wasn't in the right place was by
strace.  Very confusing for a new user building from CVS.

Added initial screened field value.

Is this still needed?
Note: it is a build issue, not "install".
