I am installing m4 and bison to install aide.
Any suggestions ?
At this point, you might have to reinstall your UNIX installation, if
what you did was not intentional. :-) What UNIX are you running?
Under BSD UNIX, one normally installs new stuff in /usr/local/. Put
the sources in /usr/local/src/. The binaries will end up in /usr/
local/bin/. Then users set searchpaths according to the scheme:
You could also make the installs in your home directory: I use
~local/, and then add the [home] part above.
