The basic command is the usual
make install. For security
issues, see section 2.3 Security.
The first time you install any manual in the GNU Info system, you should add a line (you choose where) to the file `dir' in your `$(infodir)' directory. Sample text for this is given near the top of the Texinfo source files (`kpathsea/kpathsea.texi', `dvipsk/dvips.texi', and `web2c/doc/web2c.texi'). If you have a recent version of the GNU Texinfo distribution installed (ftp://prep.ai.mit.edu/pub/gnu/texinfo-3.9.tar.gz or later), this should happen automatically.
On the offchance that this is your first Info installation, the `dir' file I use is included in the distribution as `etc/dir-example'.
You may wish to use one of the following targets, especially if you are installing on multiple architectures:
make install-execto install in architecture-dependent directories, i.e., ones that depend on the
$(exec_prefix)Make variable. This includes links to binaries, libraries, etc., not just "executables".
make install-datato install in architecture-independent directories, such as documentation, configuration files, pool files, etc.
If you use the Andrew File System, the normal path (e.g.,
prefix/bin) only gets you to a read-only copy of the files, and
you must specify a different path for installation. The best way to do this
is by setting the `prefix' variable on the
line. The sequence becomes something like this:
configure --prefix=/whatever make make install prefix=/afs/.system.name/system/1.3/@sys/whatever
ls-R)), not absolute filenames. This is done by default, but check anyway.
