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
