I would like to install the Clang/LLVM compiler suite within Slackware since I use it as my default C conpiler for my C programming assignments. I am currently building it within a build directory inside /usr/local/src (/usr/local/src/build) and wish to install it after compiling. I am following the build instructions on the Clang website:


./configure and make are doing what I expect but there are no instructions for make install on the clang website at the end. Should I run make install and if yes within the build directory or elsewhere? The actual source code is in /usr/local/src/llvm. Should I have created the build directory in /usr/local/bin instead?


I can't answer your question, but you could use the llvm 2.9 Slackbuild from slackbuilds.org for Slackware 13.37 (general information, a howto on slackbuilds.org). I suppose that's the Slackware way (comparable to Arch's PKGBUILD, someone correct me if I'm wrong, please).
