The patch I provided is wrong: it patches the distributed sources so that weechat-0.3.0 can be installed with destdir, but does not patch the files that is used to generate the Makefile.in file.

Attached patch updates the Makefile.am file, which is used to generate the Makefile.in file in the distribution.

(file #18987)

Hi Antoine,

In your patch, you modified file Makefile.in in src/plugins but this file it automatically built (it's not in repository). So I can't apply it.

Moreover, cmake is now recommended way to compile weechat, did you try it?
But anyway bugs will still be fixed in configure/Makefiles since they still exist in git repository.

Destdir is not fully supported by the weechat makefiles, as the install-data-hook rule directly refers to $(includedir).

The fix is simple: prepend $(DESTDIR) in fron of $(includedir) in this rule.
This allows to install weechat in destdir, and ease packaging.

best regards,

Antoine Reilles <tonio>
