I'm looking at ./Configure where it does:

chop $prefix if $prefix =~ /\/$/;


and then later on:

s/^INSTALLTOP=.*$/INSTALLTOP=$prefix/;


And then in crypto/Makefile, we have:

install:
@[ -n "$(INSTALLTOP)" ] # should be set by top Makefile...


which means that if you invoke "Configure" with --prefix / ... this will
fail.

Should it be:

chop $prefix if $prefix =~ /.\/$/;


instead to make sure that $prefix must be at least 2 chars long???
Otherwise, how do you correctly install with INSTALLTOP=/ ?

Or do I need to have --prefix=/. instead?

Thanks,

-Philip
