I'm puzzled by the reported failure of "install_root" to do what it's
supposed to. I've been using that formulation for years, to install new
builds of glibc into /tmp/glibc-N.M from where I make a tarball, which I
subsequently untar into the system location using a bootable CD
(SystemRescueCd). This worked fine for me with glibc 2.15. I use the
invocation, for example,
make install_root=/tmp/glibc-2.15 install
and nothing spills into system locations. I don't mind using DESTDIR
instead; I just don't understand the complaint.
It seems to work for the Slackware build script for glibc package, too.
I tried to type
env LANGUAGE=C LC_ALL=C install_root=$HOME/usr make install
and after that my system would not boot anymore.
Not sure about this, but maybe the order on the command line
may matter. All the uses of "install_root" that I've seen
place it after "make":
make install_root=whatever install
