How do you package an app up if "grep DESTDIR Makefile" returns nothing?

You could search the Makefile for 'prefix' or '/usr', and change to $PWD/ipkg/usr or something similar.

Doesn't that lead to issues apon installation on the ipk?

some have INSTALL_ROOT instead of DESTDIR. maybe you're in luck...

It might do - you could give it a go.  Otherwise,  you might be able to do a make install -n > script.sh, and replace all instances of /usr with $PWD/ipkg/usr in script.sh, then execute the script.

The script method doesn't seem to work, so I'm going to give the Makefile method a try. Do I need to edit all of the makefiles, or just one? Is there a good way to group edit the makefiles?

Thanks.

I think if you add the $PWD after have you done "make" and just before you do "make install" it should be OK? Otherwise find the "install" section of the Makefile and add DESTDIR manually. Eg here's one for zlib:

Code: [Select]
install: $(LIBS)
        -@if [ ! -d $(DESTDIR)$(exec_prefix) ]; then mkdir -p $(DESTDIR)$(exec_prefix); fi
        -@if [ ! -d $(DESTDIR)$(includedir)  ]; then mkdir -p $(DESTDIR)$(includedir); fi
        -@if [ ! -d $(DESTDIR)$(libdir)      ]; then mkdir -p $(DESTDIR)$(libdir); fi
        -@if [ ! -d $(DESTDIR)$(man3dir)     ]; then mkdir -p $(DESTDIR)$(man3dir); fi
        cp zlib.h zconf.h $(DESTDIR)$(includedir)
        chmod 644 $(DESTDIR)$(includedir)/zlib.h $(DESTDIR)$(includedir)/zconf.h
        cp $(LIBS) $(DESTDIR)$(libdir)
        cd $(DESTDIR)$(libdir); chmod 755 $(LIBS)
        -@(cd $(DESTDIR)$(libdir); $(RANLIB) libz.a || true) >/dev/null 2>&1
        cd $(DESTDIR)$(libdir); if test -f $(SHAREDLIBV); then \
          rm -f $(SHAREDLIB) $(SHAREDLIBM); \
          ln -s $(SHAREDLIBV) $(SHAREDLIB); \
          ln -s $(SHAREDLIBV) $(SHAREDLIBM); \
          (ldconfig || true)  >/dev/null 2>&1; \
        fi
        cp zlib.3 $(DESTDIR)$(man3dir)
        chmod 644 $(DESTDIR)$(man3dir)/zlib.3

Do I need to edit all of the makefiles
Normally you should only need to edit main Makefile, the ones in subdirectories usually defer "install" to that main Makefile. In fact I don't recall any application that required editing makefiles in the subdirectories.

I downloaded efltk (which is where I presume you got this mess from ) and did
Code: [Select]
./configure --prefix=/usr/local/Checking the Makefile(s) in the various directories, it seems that the bit which really does the installing is contained in ./src/makeinclude_tmpl, so I would suggest editing that file.

I'm going to need to install it anyway, so no worries about having it installed.

And yes, that is from efltk.

What I do, when faced with a prog that doesn't use DESTDIR is: install it in emacs, you can then save the buffer as text file for future reference. Then page through the install buffer in emacs and just copy the files manually from their installed location into a dir preserving the dir structure. Then you can create the ipk. Tedious, yeah, but works...

why emacs? just use script or redirect the output of the make install into a file...

oh and dont forget to send the author a note telling him/her that they should add DESTDIR

Well, I use emacs for most stuff, so I'm always in it... And then, you don't need no script.
