was a configure file created (even with the warnings)?

background from the GNU Makefile page:

Data files used by the program during its execution are divided into categories in two ways.

  • Some files are normally modified by programs; others are never normally modified (though users may edit some of these).
  • Some files are architecture-independent and can be shared by all machines at a site; some are architecture-dependent and can be shared only by machines of the same kind and operating system; others may never be shared between two machines.

This makes for six different possibilities. However, we want to discourage the use of architecture-dependent files, aside from object files and libraries. It is much cleaner to make other data files architecture-independent, and it is generally not hard.

Here are the variables Makefiles should use to specify directories to put these various kinds of files in:

‘datarootdir’

The root of the directory tree for read-only architecture-independent data files. This should normally be ‘/usr/local/share’, but write it as ‘$(prefix)/share’. (If you are using Autoconf, write it as ‘@datarootdir@’.) ‘datadir’’s default value is based on this variable; so are ‘infodir’, ‘mandir’, and others.
