  • Ticket #25851 – Description

    initial v1  
    22Two suggestions i want to make are:
    33
    4 1. Add -C option to make
     41. Add `-C` option to make
    55for example:
    66
     
    1212This allows a user to build out of tree from a dedicated build directory which they can create themselves. This way one does not have to worry about how the developers have configured `make clean` and `make distclean` which varies between `Makefile`'s. A quick `rm -rf build` and one can start re-compiling if something goes wrong.
    1313
    14 2. Add DESTDIR
     142. Add `DESTDIR` option
    1515I like to convert my source code installs into `RPM` packages before installing it. This requires me to use the `DESTDIR` option to set up a staging directory for the installation. I tried this with sagemath and it seemed to split the installtion between this staging area and the `--prefix`
