Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 446305
Allow installs to other prefixes
Last modified: 2008-05-14 09:40:16 EDT
I've tried to fix a bit the autotools setup to allow installations to other
prefixes. Maybe there are still some things that don't work but we can fix those
later. ATM this patch allows s-c-p to run.
I've added the AS_AC_EXPAND macro from http://autostars.sourceforge.net/.

Thanks for the patch. I've been investigating the license of the AS_AC_EXPAND
macro, and it seems to be this:
dnl (C) 2003, 2004, 2005 Thomas Vander Stichele <thomas at apestaart dot org>
dnl Copying and distribution of this file, with or without modification,
dnl are permitted in any medium without royalty provided the copyright
dnl notice and this notice are preserved.
I'm not entirely sure that's compatible with distributing under the GNU GPL
version 2 or later, and the autostars project seems to be a bit haphazard when
it comes to licensing (see their LICENSE file for example). I think I'd prefer
to steer clear of that code really.
I've added a class to config.py to do this at runtime using os.path.expandvars.
