    3434* PREFIX/bin: contains the generated binaries (e.g. {{{ffmpeg}}}, {{{ffplay}}}, {{{ffprobe}}} etc. in the case of FFmpeg) 
     35* PREFIX/include: contains the library headers (e.g. {{{libavutil/avstring.h}}}, {{{libavcodec/avcodec.h}}}, {{{libavformat/avformat.h}}} etc. in case of FFmpeg), required to compile applications linked against the package libraries 
    3536* PREFIX/lib: contains the generated libraris (e.g. {{{libavutil}}}, {{{libavcodec}}}, {{{libavformat}}} etc. in the case of FFmpeg)  
    3637* PREFIX/share: contains various system-independent components, especially documentation files and examples

To verify the binaries install you can simply run a command with the tool name, and verify the complete path with {{{which -a}}}, which will show all the tools with the given name available in the system.

     88Extra care must be paid in case you have several installations of the same package, in order to avoid conflicts.
