I'm trying to install preview-latex here, and at first the configure script is 
not able to find the texmf directory.

checking for gs... gs
checking for latex... /usr/local/texlive8/bin/sparc-solaris2.7/latex
checking for pdflatex... /usr/local/texlive8/bin/sparc-solaris2.7/pdflatex
checking for tex... /usr/local/texlive8/bin/sparc-solaris2.7/tex
checking for texhash... /usr/local/texlive8/bin/sparc-solaris2.7/texhash
checking for prefix from kpsepath... "/usr/local/texlive8"
checking for TDS-compliant directory... no
checking for TeX directory hierarchy... no
checking for TeX input directory... no
configure: error: Cannot find the texmf directory!
Please use --with-texmf-dir=dir to specify where the preview tex files go
address@hidden (228)> 

I tried executing

./configure --with-texmf-dir=/usr/local/texlive8/texmf

which then goes through. But then

address@hidden (230)> make
(cd latex ; make all)
make[1]: Entering directory `/local/mommer/install/preview-latex-0.9.1/latex'

Any ideas?
