#1567 closed defect (fixed)

make install fails with relative path for prefix dir

Reported by: Arjan Owned by:

Analyzed by developer: no


Summary of the bug:

install fails because the working directory is changed twice in a single make-command.

How to reproduce:

download (latest) source
run configure with relative path for --prefix. ie. --prefix=install

INSTALL	libavdevice/
STRIP	install-libavdevice-shared
cd: 1: can't cd to install/lib

this seems to be because the command which is executed actually changes from working dir to install/lib ( which is good ) and then another cd command is executed ( also to install/lib ) but this fails because the working dir was already set to this directory.

Only reproducible with --enable-shared
Culprit is the following line in "install-lib$(NAME)-shared:"

$(Q)$(foreach F,$(SLIB_INSTALL_LINKS),cd "$(SHLIBDIR)" && $(LN_S) $(SLIB_INSTALL_NAME) $(F);)
