Season’s greetings and all that.
I have a working 1.2.14 installation.
Now I am trying to upgrade to the shiny new 1.4 release (and I want to keep the new release separate from my existing working 1.2 installation) but when I use “configure --prefix=/opt/asterisk-1.4”, the generated Makefile tries to put the sound files under /var. i.e. it’s ignoring the --prefix. I didn’t notice if any other installation directories are wrong.
