Using make and ./configure

Can I concatenate ./confure with --prefixes as in the following:

./configure --prefix=with-unixODBC= --with-mysql-dirs=/usr/local/mysql/lib/mysql --with-mysql-includes=/usr/local/mysql/include/mysql

Finally, if I get a message, no targets found after using
what does this indicate

I take it that you are configuring PHP yeah?? You only use the --prefix option if you want to change the install dir, so it would read --prefix=/someDir/someOtherDir, also you would typically only use an = if you are going to supply a path, so for the with-unixODBC= option you would want to supply the path to the unix ODBC files.

As for the make error - if you are running ./configure with those options it probably isn't running correctly - don't you get an error message?? If ./configure doesn't complete sucessfully then your make isn't going to work.

Check your configure options and try again... I think you want something like
./configure --with-unixODBC=/path/to/odbc/drivers --with-mysql-dirs=/usr/local/mysql/lib/mysql --with-mysql-includes=/usr/local/mysql/include/mysql
