    Question $DESTDIR's not there....bit of a problem.

    Hi guys! Probably a noob question, but still...

    Attempting to package a program, more to prove it to myself than to release it, anyways, $(DESTDIR) in the makefile is blank. No, I haven't been messing around with anything, exporting DESTDIR or anything. So it tries to install as make usually would when I run make, i.e. to the root of filesystem, not $(DESTDIR)/usr/bin or whatever.

    I put 'env' in the makefile, here's the output of it:

    Code:
    env
    DEB_BUILD_ARCH_OS=linux
    DH_INTERNAL_BUILDFLAGS=1
    CPPFLAGS=
    CFLAGS=-g -O2
    DEB_HOST_ARCH_BITS=32
    CXXFLAGS=-g -O2
    DEB_BUILD_GNU_CPU=i686
    PATH=/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/bin/X11
    GPG_AGENT_INFO=/tmp/keyring-Bih1YK/gpg:0:1
    DEB_HOST_ARCH_CPU=i386
    FFLAGS=-g -O2
    DEB_HOST_ARCH_ENDIAN=little
    DEB_HOST_GNU_SYSTEM=linux-gnu
    LDFLAGS=-Wl,-Bsymbolic-functions
    DEB_BUILD_ARCH=i386
    HOME=/home/michael
    LOGNAME=michael
    DEB_HOST_GNU_TYPE=i686-linux-gnu
    DEB_HOST_ARCH_OS=linux
    DEB_BUILD_ARCH_BITS=32
    MAKEFLAGS=w
    DEB_BUILD_GNU_TYPE=i686-linux-gnu
    MFLAGS=-w
    DEB_BUILD_ARCH_CPU=i386
    DEB_BUILD_ARCH_ENDIAN=little
    DEB_HOST_GNU_CPU=i686
    DEB_BUILD_GNU_SYSTEM=linux-gnu
    DEB_HOST_MULTIARCH=i386-linux-gnu
    DEB_HOST_ARCH=i386
    DEB_BUILD_MULTIARCH=i386-linux-gnu
    LANG=en_GB.UTF-8
    TERM=xterm
    MAKELEVEL=2
    Anyone got any ideas?

    Of course I could export destdir, but that kinda defeats the point of it.

    Re: $DESTDIR's not there....bit of a problem.

    How exactly are you calling make ?

    Code:
    firas@av104151 ~ % cat Makefile  
    all:
    	env
    firas@av104151 ~ % DESTDIR=/foo make | grep DESTDIR
    DESTDIR=/foo

    I'm not, I'm letting whatever part of debhelper call it for me, as per usual.

    I'll try setting DESTDIR, as in your code.

    Can you post your debian/rules then?

    Just as per-usual from dh_make. Sorry, not at the right computer. The default dh_make file, something like:

    Code:
    ##headery stuff
    
         dh@

    Well then I don't know why you're not seeing DESTDIR in make's env, because I do have it here (line 77):

    Hmmm...I did create the Makefile AFTER I did dh_make-would that affect it?

    I know I'm not supposed to, but the package came as raw source with no autoconf or anything. I'll try again in morning with new Makefile.

    Not that I know of. What does your Makefile look like (especially, where do you put the env command)?

    first I had all of the install stuff, but no I've just edited it down to:

    Code:
    all:
    
          env
