#1644 closed defect (fixed)

OS X: Files are installed outside of --prefix

Reported by: Sharpie Owned by: grass-dev@…
Priority: major Milestone: 6.4.4
Component: Installation Version: svn-releasebranch64
Keywords: Cc:
CPU: Unspecified Platform: MacOSX


Building GRASS 6.4.2. When running make install GRASS always tries to place a symlink in /Library/Documentation/Help which is owned by root.

This completely hoses non-privileged local installs.


  • Remove lines 307 and 308 from the top level Makefile---or at least make this action conditional on a configuration option.
