10.4 Installation Names

By default, `make install' will install into `/usr/local/bin', `/usr/local/man', etc. You can specify an installation prefix other than `/usr/local' by giving configure the option `--prefix=PATH', or by specifying a value for the DESTDIR `make' variable when running `make install'.

You can specify separate installation prefixes for architecture-specific files and architecture-independent files. If you give configure the option `--exec-prefix=PATH', `make install' will use PATH as the prefix for installing programs and libraries. Documentation and other data files will still use the regular prefix.
