Maxima version: 5.10.0
Maxima build date: 17:0 9/25/2006
host type: i686-pc-linux-gnu
lisp-implementation-type: GNU Common Lisp (GCL)
lisp-implementation-version: GCL 2.6.7

file_search_maxima default value use /share/maxima/
prefix instead of /usr/share/maxima/

Here is the sample code:

(%i1) ode2('diff(f,x)=f,f,x);

Could not find `ode2.mac' using paths in

    This error almost certainly indicates that the build process got mixed up and $prefix was set incorrectly. However in the absence of further information, which is not present and impossible to obtain without an email address or other contact info for the bug reporter, there is nothing we can do. Therefore closing this report as rejected.
