Tramp installation on Fedora Core 3: Small hiccup

Hello everyone,

I successfully installed Tramp 2.1.3 on Fedora Core 3 (FC3) after reading the suggestions in a previous thread on this mailing list. Since emacs is painfully outdated on a machine I have to use, Tramp will help me immensely.

I did notice one slightly strange thing during the install process; I'm unsure if it's a Fedora oddity, or a bug in Tramp's installation. The third line of the output of 'make install' ended up being:

     mkdir -p /usr/share/share/emacs/site-lisp

Seems like an extra 'share' got in there somehow, and the tramp files ended up in a newly created directory.

The program worked in two circumstances: (1) if I copied the files placed in the above directory to /usr/share/emacs/site-lisp (which is where most of the other default emacs stuff seems to live); (2) if I pointed at my Tramp install directory in ~/.emacs, as suggested on the help pages (I'm using Emacs 21.3.1).

I compiled the software with:

./configure --prefix=/usr/share --with-contrib
make install           # as root

Let me know if you need any more information---I've kept all the files involved with the installation, and could easily reproduce any of the compilation output if it would help.
