#1078 closed bug (fixed (in master))

configure should honour --bindir= setting

Reported by: magnate Owned by: magnate
Milestone: 3.1.2 beta Keywords: compat blocker

Description

Widget points out in #1076 that bindir is hardcoded to be ${execprefix}/games, and any bindir specified on the command line is ignored.

While that is the correct (FHS) default, we should honour a user-specified bindir.

I'm afraid I can't get this to work in [83f0be6] (SVN r1904) or the 3.1.2 tag.

Calling ./configure --bindir=/zzz/xxx gives:

binary path: /usr/local/games

And yes, that's after running autogen.sh. I'm using autoconf 2.65. Examining $ac_option reveals that it is '-qversion' at time of test.

I don't have perms to reopen this.
