I'm trying to build Bitcoin Core and, if I understand it correctly, the configure script uses the
--prefix= option twice, once for the inclusion of the depends build (from
**Bitcoin Core's configure script by default will ignore the depends output.** In order for it to pick up libraries, tools, and settings from the depends build, you must point it at the appropriate `--prefix` directory generated by the build. In the above example, a prefix dir named x86_64-w64-mingw32 will be created. To use it for Bitcoin: ./configure --prefix=$PWD/depends/x86_64-w64-mingw32
And another usage of
--prefix as it's usually used in configure, to specify a nonstandard install location (output from
By default, `make install' will install all the files in `/usr/local/bin', `/usr/local/lib' etc. You can specify an installation prefix other than `/usr/local' using `--prefix', for instance `--prefix=$HOME'.
How can I specify an installation path and a depends path at the same time?
