package installation problem


Installing djbdns and ucspi-tcp (I am in way over my head) on RH7 I ran into a problem.
The installation directions stated as follows;


Unpack the djbdns package:

gunzip djbdns-1.05.tar
tar -xf djbdns-1.05.tar
cd djbdns-1.05

Compile the djbdns programs:

make


As root, install the djbdns programs under /usr/local:

make setup check




My question regards the wording of the last instruction:

"...under /usr/local:"

Does that mean I am to do something different to send the programs to /usr/local? Or is the instruction, "make setup check" supposed to install the packages there?

Two things, first you can use:

tar xvzf djbdns-1.05.tar.gz

and it will remove one of the steps of opening archives.

Next before you compile do this:

./configure --prefix=/usr/local

Then do:

make

Next:

make install

And if you want to clean up do:

make clean

There is no configure script, but the path to install will be in Makefile. But be careful editing it!
