OK. Poor choice of words. Got a better suggestion?
If you specify a prefix at install time, it is ignored, the one specified at
configure time is used.
./waf install --prefix=bar --destdir=foo
and look at the result in foo/
[murray at hgm raw]$ ll foo/usr/local/
drwxrwxr-x 3 murray murray 4096 Dec 20 15:43 lib
drwxrwxr-x 2 murray murray 4096 Dec 20 15:43 sbin
drwxrwxr-x 2 murray murray 4096 Dec 20 15:43 bin
These are my opinions. I hate spam.
