I am trying to install zlib-1.2.8 from within "/root/tmp/zlib-1.2.8/" but I think my configuration options are incomplete. The configuration command that I'm using is:
./configure --prefix=/usr2/lib2 --eprefix=/usr2/lib2
Prior to compilation the "/usr2/lib2/" directory is empty so that makes it easy to make comparisons to what is in "/root/tmp/zlib-1.2.8/". After the
command is executed, I've noticed that there are a number of *.o, *.lo, *.h, and *.c files in the "/root/tmp/zlib-1.2.8/" directory that are not present in any directory under the target directory "/usr2/lib2/". This makes me think that my configuration specification is incomplete. I believe the *.c files would go in an src directory, the *.h files would go in an include directory, I don't know where the *.lo or *.o files would go. How would I specify these options in the configure command? I would appreciate it if someone could tell me how to correct this situation?
