#7 Problem installing Addons to non-standard directory

addons (12)
Lex Trotman

I have a development geany installed in a local directory, --prefix=/home/geany/projects/geany as well as 0.16 in the default location.
Trying to install addons to the development geany still attempts to install the Addons plugin binary to /usr/lib64/geany
This does not change with either --prefix, --exec_prefix or both (as I read configure libdir should be exec_prefix/lib)
The addons files correctly follow the prefix setting.

PS addons isn't in the category list for this tracker on sourceforge

    Known problem. I just don't know how to fix this. We would need to test whether the user specified a specific --libdir option to the configure script or not. However, no idea how to do this and I won't work on this.
    The following is the relevant part of configure.in:

    # TODO find a way to NOT override --libdir/--docdir command line option if given
    libdir="`$PKG_CONFIG --variable=libdir geany`/geany"

    That's why it doesn't work. If anyone knows a solution, patches are welcome.
