Btw, rakudobrew, rakudo via git and star are *not* installing to /usr/local/bin/.

rakudo via git and star install to ./install. But support the --prefix option to override this as shown.

Follow-up questions to those I posed on perl6-users today.

So I have successfully used rakudobrew to build moar and panda.  That perl6
executable is located here:
$ which perl6

Now, suppose I *also* wish to install Rakudo Star.  I've downloaded the
rakudo-star-2016.01 tarball and have read the instructions in README for
installation.  From past experience, I guess that if I say simply:

$ perl --backend=moar --gen-moar
$ make
$ make install

... that this will install in /usr/local/bin/.  Is that recommended
(assuming that my main emphasis is on learning Perl6 in the context of a
beginners study group)?

Is there a PREFIX setting, should I wish to install it under my home

Thanks to all who worked on getting Rakudo Star yesterday and who
contributed to the earlier thread.
