Re: (ITS#3856) prefix showing up in man pages
Here's something to think on:
You can build with a given prefix (this is what I do), that is different
than where you install the software with make install. This is what I do:
then, when I go to install, I do:
make install prefix=/usr/local/stow/openldap-<version>
Now, for everything *but* the man pages, libtool seems to know what to do
correctly here (thinks are linked against /usr/local/lib for libraries,
etc. I get the same problem you do as far as the man page declarations at
the top. I bet, however, there's a way to use the configure generated
prefix over the prefix supplied at make install time.
In looking at the man pages, it substitutes "LIBEXECDIR" for the path.
*Maybe* putting prefix in there instead would solve it, I do not know.
That, or add a new variable to the makefile to use for substitution instead.
