./build_kst worked here on Slackware, so that's an improvement.
The INSTALL instructions are vague on how to build a packageable version.
Is a DESTDIR-like thing supported? Is that what's called OUTPUT_DIR
passed to ./install-kst? That one doesn't seem to do anything.
Looking at the qmake generated makefiles seem to indicate I should set
the envirnomental variable INSTALL_ROOT; so let's try creating a kst
that will eventually be installed in /absolute/prefix, but that I want
to stage, for packaging reasons in /dest/dir (ie. so everything will be
installed in /dest/dir/absolute/prefix/*) I tried:
$ INSTALL_ROOT=/dest/dir ./install-kst anything-but-debug /absolute/prefix
almost works. It installs things in /dest/dir/* instead of the intended
/dest/dir/absolute/prefix/*. (ie. setting INSTALL_ROOT ignores
As an aside, you should point out in the INSTALL document that the
INSTALL_PREFIX passed to ./install-kst should be an absolute path or
weirdness will ensue. (The particular weirdness is things get installed
in the src tree.)
Doing something like
$ ./install-kst still-not-debug /some/path/not/usr
properly installs kst2 in /some/path/not/usr, but the executable can't
be run, because there are no RPATHs in it pointing to
