No, this has been discussed internally befor many times. The project
already moved from autotools, scons, cmake to the current state.
So far it served us very well for a lot of different architectures
with minimal fuss (AIX, Haiku, GNU Hurd, minix, windows). This is
a community land mine.

Also if /usr is the preferred PREFIX it should be set to the same
value when calling make and make install.

Yes, the check portion should be just calling "make check".

Thanks insteresting. Which gcc is this? Are you sure you build with
a 64 bit assembler there?

Kind regards,


May you be peaceful, may you live in safety, may you be free from
