It would be terrific if "make install" produced results
that were a little more typical of unix systems. That
is, it installs necessary files somewhere other than in
the source tree. My hope is that this will come with
the --prefix with the move to autoconf.

Also, it would be nice to have all executables
installed into a single bin directory rather than
having many programs in the basal directory, a scripts
directory and an aux_bin directory. How about just a
single directory of executables?

I think that many sys admins would thank you for these
changes.

    Yes, all of the features you suggest are planned for the
    move to autoconf. Thanks for the input.
