A.1 prefix

prefix corresponds to the variable `prefix' for configure, which passes it on to the `Makefile' it creates. prefix sets the root installation directory for host-independent files as follows:

the directory path of the default database

site-wide configuration files

man pages

info documents

include files


The default value for prefix is `/usr/local', which can be changed on the command line to configure using

configure --prefix=prefix ...
