Hi Michael,

Unfortunately, it is not:
(cd /home/mosipov/asciidoc/bin; ln -sf asciidoc)
(cd /home/mosipov/asciidoc/bin; ln -sf a2x)

have you thought to look on asciidoc source ?
The install system is very poor, so it is not an issue of make..

However with

$ autoreconf -ifv
$ ./configure --prefix=/asciidoc
$ make install DESTDIR="/tmp/foo"

I was able to install in "/tmp/foo/asciidoc"

Hi Marco,

just tried to reproduce this on some other project which should work. I
have tried curl from GitHub master.

I have the very same result. I cannot install in $HOME/curl but
make install DESTDIR="/tmp" successfully ends up in

This is very strange.


why strange ?

Strange because of:

the final installation dir is ${DESTDIR}${PREFIX}

for if you put

the result will be in  /tmp$HOME/curl alias /tmp/home/mosipov/curl

Install does not work at all, if I do not supply the DESTDIR variable.
Regard where I want to install. That is the point.

Here is the output:

On asciidoc there is a mistake and the final dir is

so if you define only
   and not DESTDIR

the final dir should be /$HOME/curl alias //home/mosipov/asciidoc
and cygwin rejects the leading "//" as they have a special meaning.

In that case the trick is

the result will be in  ///$HOME/asciidoc
  alias ///home/mosipov/asciidoc
  alias /home/mosipov/asciidoc

That is nice. asciidoc is broken here. I will open up an issue on GitHub.
