Not sure what exactly is going on. However, is it possible that you are a regular user on this machine while installation under /prog/ requires administrator's access? If so, can you try a different installation directory instead? For instance,
Let us know how it goes.
I want to compile APBS-1.3.
I followed the instructions in the INSTALL-file
This worked fine. After this I wanted to start 'make && make install'

that is on PYTHONPATH or supports .pth files
* You can add the installation directory to the PYTHONPATH
environment variable. (It must then also be on PYTHONPATH
whenever you run Python and want to use the package(s) you
* You can set up the installation directory to support
".pth" files by using one of the approaches described here:

but it still doesn't work.
I'm not a experienced user of python, so if you can assist me with this
it would be great.
Thanks a lot.
