2.2.6 Installing files ---------------------- The basic command is the usual `make install'. For security issues, Note: 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 `$(infodir)' directory. Sample text for this is given near the top of the Texinfo source files (`kpathsea/kpathsea.texi', `dvipsk/dvips.texi', and `web2c/doc/web2c.texi'). If you have a recent version of the GNU Texinfo distribution installed (`ftp://prep.ai.mit.edu/pub/gnu/texinfo-3.9.tar.gz' or later), this should happen automatically. On the offchance that this is your first Info installation, the `dir' file I use is included in the distribution as `etc/dir-example'. You may wish to use one of the following targets, especially if you are installing on multiple architectures: * `make install-exec' to install in architecture-dependent directories, i.e., ones that depend on the `$(exec_prefix)' Make variable. This includes links to binaries, libraries, etc., not just "executables". * `make install-data' to 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 `make' command line. The sequence becomes something like this: configure --prefix=/whatever make make install prefix=/afs/.SYSTEM.NAME/system/1.3/@sys/whatever With AFS, you will definitely want to use relative filenames in `ls-R' (Note: Filename database), not absolute filenames. This is done by default, but check anyway.
