#187 closed defect (wontfix)

--prefix shows invalid default location

Reported by: kneufeld Owned by: pramsey
Priority: low Milestone: PostGIS 1.4.0
Component: postgis Version:
Keywords: Cc:

Description

Steps to reproduce the problem: ./configure --help | tail -n 76 | head -n 2

What do you see?

--prefix=PREFIX install architecture-independent files in PREFIX

usr/local

What should you see?

--prefix=PREFIX install architecture-independent files in PREFIX

[${POSTGRESQL_HOME}]

Or something more sensible. PostGIS doesn't actually default to /usr/local, but to the PostgreSQL installation directory specified by pg_config.

It seems this caused confusion in a recent user's post.

Isn't the real problem here that prefix is meaningless? It doesn't *do* anything, all the stuff is installed where pg_config says.
