*Perhaps* what Chris is trying to understand is how you use "make 
$DESTDIR" and tools like "tree" to find out what the standard build 
commands do and how/why they get changed?

Just a thought - I know that was often something I had pondered before I 
found out!

It's what I used to work out what Asterisk does and enabled me to tailor 
my build commands so everything went where I wanted it...



The way out is open!
