Okay, first of all you are using way, way too many blank lines in your email and that is super distracting, so please fix that in the future. This is not a college paper, you don't need to double-space everything. As for the prefix issue, I am honestly not understanding the problem. You wanted to compile pacman to use a custom installation directory, and that is *exactly* what pacman did with `--prefix`. Yes, prefix changes where the pacman binary goes, and it changes where the libalpm.so library goes... and it also changes where the sysconfdir and localstatedir go. You are of course entirely free to change the defaults for those as well, for example to continue using the same configuration and databases used by the repository package for pacman, you simply specify `--sysconfdir=/etc --localstatedir=/var` P.S. these options are pretty standard autotools things, so this is generic knowledge that will apply across many coding projects. :) -- Eli Schwartz Bug Wrangler and Trusted User
