meld and /usr/local

Meld is a visual diff merge and source control tool, I compiled but get when namcaping:

[ganlu@A meld]$ namcap meld-0.9.4.1-1.pkg.tar.gz
...
meld       W: File (usr/local/) exists in a non-standard directory.
meld       W: File (usr/local/bin/) exists in a non-standard directory.
meld       W: File (usr/local/bin/meld) exists in a non-standard directory.
meld       W: File (usr/local/lib/) exists in a non-standard directory.
meld       W: File (usr/local/lib/meld/) exists in a non-standard directory.
.....

I have set prefix=/usr in PKGBUILD, but it seems no luck.

build() {
  cd $startdir/src/$pkgname-$pkgver
  ./configure --prefix=/usr
  make || return 1
  make DESTDIR=$startdir/pkg install
}

Re: meld and /usr/local

There seems to be a package meld in staging

Re: meld and /usr/local

Oh, thank you, sorry I didn't check the staging.
Anyway I still wonder how I can do with such situation.

Re: meld and /usr/local

Some time ago I also tried to make meld package and I had to do something like this to make it install in the proper directory

  make prefix=/usr || return 1
  make prefix=/usr install DESTDIR=$startdir/pkg

I know that's weird but it didn't want to work without these settings. I didn't investigated it further but I guess something was wrong in the meld makefile. I hope it's fixed now in the newest version.
