Actually, I remember changing only one Makefile--and I should have 
changed the makefile.in.  That was in 'hplip' for my printer.  I don't 
remember having to change any other package.  I have had to 'read and 
research' makefiles to see if the whole "directory chain" of an install 
needed to be converted to "install directories."
