    You are incorrect there Richard.

    I have used those instructions for sudo and it does NOT as you
    state produce
    two sudo directories.

Maybe we are both right :-) I didn't run make && make install with the book's instructions so I can't confirm that two directories *are* produced.

    Try running ./configure --help and looking at the maintainers


I's a fact, however, that if you run --libexecdir=/usr/lib/sudo you *will* receive a warning from the configure script that reads: WARNING: libexecdir should not include the "sudo" subdirectory. Running --libexecdir=/usr/lib does not produce the warning, but still provides the required /usr/lib/sudo.

If, as you say, two directories *aren't* produced then the configure script must be compensating for the error. However, it is *still* an error and should be rectified in the book.

I go have a look and correct if necessary.
