Don't know much about monodoc, giving this one to Joe.
Comment 2 Brent Smith 2005-07-19 04:25:13 UTC
this is particularly annoying in jhbuild, since it sets the prefix using the
autotools packages, and ends up causing my build to fail everytime:  The problem 
is in the Makefile.am file in the mono/docs/ directory.

  install -d -m 755 $(DESTDIR)/`monodoc --get-sourcesdir`
  install -m 644 $(srcdir)/dbus-sharp-docs.source $(DESTDIR)/`monodoc
  install -m 644 dbus-sharp-docs.tree $(DESTDIR)/`monodoc --get-sourcesdir`
  install -m 644 dbus-sharp-docs.zip $(DESTDIR)/`monodoc --get-sourcesdir`

  rm -f $(DESTDIR)/`monodoc --get-sourcesdir`/dbus-sharp-docs.source
  rm -f $(DESTDIR)/`monodoc --get-sourcesdir`/dbus-sharp-docs.tree
  rm -f $(DESTDIR)/`monodoc --get-sourcesdir`/dbus-sharp-docs.zip

I always end up changing $(DESTDIR) to $(prefix) in the generated Makefile

This should be changed to use the autotools methods for installing/uninstalling

xorg-6.8.2-r1 dual works

Would something like this be ok?  this seemed to fix the problem for me.

patch to make monodoc stuff install to $prefix

Is there any reason why something like this wouldn't work?

The mono bindings are no longer supported.
