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."
