Summary0000452: Running the ascend binary causes an infinite loop after compilation
DescriptionI was compiling ascend from source and finished it successfully. But, when I tried to run it I got the following error.

 Restarting with corrected environment...
 LD_LIBRARY_PATH = /usr/local//lib:/usr/local/lib
 ASCENDLIBRARY = /usr/local/lib/ascend/models:/usr/local//lib/ascend/models
 PYTHON = /usr/bin/python
 script = /usr/local/bin/ascend
 Restarting with corrected environment...
 LD_LIBRARY_PATH = /usr/local//lib:/usr/local/lib
 PYTHON = /usr/bin/python
 script = /usr/local/bin/ascend

It was observed that the LD_LIBRARY_PATH had two slashes instead of one because of specifying INSTALL_PATH as "/usr/local/" during scons install. The operating system takes it as the correct path and installs the files accordingly but the configuration uses the string "/usr/local" as is and hence the extra slash.
Additional InformationTo recreate the bug, perform the following steps.

         cd ~/ascend
         scons install INSTALL_PATH=/usr/local/
TagsNo tags attached.

I think that the solution to this is to normalise the INSTALL_PREFIX and related paths before they are inserted into files like
