Description Nikita Tsukanov 2013-07-30 16:17:50 UTC
Hello. When I run make install with DESTDIR option, it creates symlink to a wrong path. For example

$ ls /opt/mono-3/bin/mono -la
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 65 июля  30 23:52 /opt/mono-3/bin/mono -> /tmp/mono32/mono-3.2.0/debian/mono-3-opt/opt/mono-3/bin/mono-sgen

As you can see /opt/mono-3/bin/mono points to /tmp/mono32/mono-3.2.0/debian/mono-3-opt/opt/mono-3/bin/mono-sgen instead of /opt/mono-3/bin/mono-sgen

That seems to be linux only, it works fine on osx.

This seems to be fixed now.
