If you install things with --prefix=/usr it will mess with your system. You are, in fact, asking for it. I have had only much stranger and rarer (yet fixable) preprocessor/linker issues when I've installed the package under a reasonably private path like /usr/heimdal. Besides, $PATH can be long nowadays; bash is forgiving. If you really want /usr/bin, do this: ./configure --prefix=/usr --includedir=/usr/include/heimdal \ --libdir=/usr/lib/heimdal --oldincludedir=/usr/lib/heimdal && make && sudo make install heimdal-config will then help you when you configure and compile software that needs heimdal. -- Måns Nilsson Systems Specialist +46 70 681 7204 cell KTHNOC +46 8 790 6518 office MN1334-RIPE I own seven-eighths of all the artists in downtown Burbank!
