Normally, "make install PREFIX=/usr/local" installs in /usr/local/bin, etc. make install PREFIX=/usr make install PREFIX=/usr/local make install PREFIX=. e.g. ./bin, ./lib, ./man, etc. PREFIX is ignored completely!. This is on a fc9 system!
Argyll is cross platform, and uses a cross platform build system (Jam), so it doesn't necessarily follow specific platform conventions, and tries to be self contained for robustness. I've not attempted to add all the platform specific things for installation, and in any case on many platforms this is the domain of an installer program. [I'm not even sure where the PREFIX convention is documented, or what it's related to - UNIX ? Linux ? make ? configure ? automake ?. Google didn't return any useful leads. Argyll doesn't use configure or make. ] Graeme Gill.
