Description:You can specify a number of command line switches to "./configure" to fine-tune where files get installed (see below).  The Asterisk build system currently does not use any of them except --prefix which is used in a way that will likely confuse users used to configure scripts from other packages.  For example, if you run "./configure --prefix=/usr" modules will end up being installed in /usr/usr/lib/aserisk/modules, which likely isn't what the user was expecting.  Attached is a patch that uses these switches to define where files get installed.

 --bindir=DIR           user executables [EPREFIX/bin]
 --sbindir=DIR          system admin executables [EPREFIX/sbin]
 --libexecdir=DIR       program executables [EPREFIX/libexec]
 --datadir=DIR          read-only architecture-independent data [PREFIX/share]
 --sysconfdir=DIR       read-only single-machine data [PREFIX/etc]
 --sharedstatedir=DIR   modifiable architecture-independent data [PREFIX/com]
 --localstatedir=DIR    modifiable single-machine data [PREFIX/var]
 --libdir=DIR           object code libraries [EPREFIX/lib]
 --includedir=DIR       C header files [PREFIX/include]
 --oldincludedir=DIR    C header files for non-gcc [/usr/include]
 --infodir=DIR          info documentation [PREFIX/info]
 --mandir=DIR           man documentation [PREFIX/man]

If you use this patch witout specifying any of the options, the paths become ...


This is quite different that what we are using now ...

I've uploaded a patch that should get the defaults back to the way they were.

This patch did not preserve the default paths for FreeBSD.  See the attached file to see what defaults.h should be and what it really is.

I've reopened the asterisk/team/jcollie/bug7057 branch and committed a fix that seems to do the job...

Not quite .... here is the current defaults.h.  Please compare this to the one in the file I posted.
