- Subject: Using cygport for a local install
Suppose I want to modify and rebuild a cygwin package that was created
using cygport. I may want to install it in /usr/local to avoid conflict
with the official version. One way to do this (I think) is to add
options like --prefix=/usr/local, --bindir=/usr/local/bin, etc., to the
call to cygconf. Is this the recommended method, or does cygport
provide a simpler way to do it?
