Summary0000189: file install locations with 'jam install'
DescriptionIt seems that files are being placed in the following locations using 'jam install' after using 'reconfig'. This is equivalent to using ./configure with

[john@jdpipe autotools]$ autoconf && ./reconfig
./configure --prefix=/home/john/ascroot --with-fortran=g77,/usr/lib/libf2c.a --enable-gcc --with-tcl=/usr/lib/,/usr/include/tcl.h --with-tk=/usr/lib/,/usr/include/tk.h --with-wish=/usr/bin/wish --with-tktable=/usr/share/Tktable2.8/

The --prefix option means that there should simply be directories 'bin', 'models', etc, under there. Not extra levels of heirarchy. Instead, I see:

Link ../jam/Debug/linux/ascend4
Chmod1 ../jam/Debug/linux/ascend4
MkDir1 /home/john/ascroot/Ascend4-0.9.5
MkDir1 /home/john/ascroot/Ascend4-0.9.5/ascend4
MkDir1 /home/john/ascroot/Ascend4-0.9.5/ascend4/bin
Install /home/john/ascroot/Ascend4-0.9.5/ascend4/bin/ascend4

Fixed in changeset 178. Removed the extra directory levels, relying on --prefix config param. Will need tweaking on Windows.

The jam install system is under construction. It is not surprising that it doesn't work properly. This should perhaps be more than a footnote in trunk/jam/ReadMe/txt. It's been used a bit under Windows but not worked out under Linux.

Hi Jerry,

No worries, I just wanted to make sure I recorded all these things, since I had a bit of a session on all this stuff yesterday. It's looking good, I think. I've been able to build with Linux, and now install everything except the models.
