To install the tool, simply type make install; you usually
need to be root to install the tool on a system directory.
The tool will be installed by default in the ``LOCAL'' domain, which
usually means /usr/local/ in a Unix FHS filesystem layout, or
/usr/GNUstep/Local in a traditional GNUstep filesystem
layout. Which filesystem layout is used on your system depends on how
GNUstep was configured on your system.
You can change the installation domain as follows:
make install GNUSTEP_INSTALLATION_DOMAIN=USER
This will install the tool in your own user GNUstep directory (eg,
/home/nicola/GNUstep), which doesn't require you to be root
and could be a better place for testing. I often do this when testing
my own code and programs, and it is very handy.
If you are packaging your tool and want it to be installed in the
``SYSTEM'' domain (ie, /usr in an FHS filesystem layout and
/usr/GNUstep/System in a GNUstep one), you would do:
make install GNUSTEP_INSTALLATION_DOMAIN=SYSTEM
