Even then, only for 'make install', the others should be run as 
an ordinary user.

The instructions i wrote only create the R package, don't install it.
If you want two R packages for the two versions then install them
into separate directories and use R's .libPaths() command to decide
which one to load. You can't load both of them at the same time, for 
that you need to change the name of the package to 'igraph-devel' 
or something. But you don't appear to be using R anyway....

Btw. the development version might contain bugs, might not even compile
sometimes, some funtions are undocumented, etc. Please don't be too
