Installing the Binaries

Once you have built Kerberos, you should install the binaries. You can do this by running:

     % make install

If you want to install the binaries into a destination directory that is not their final destination, which may be convenient if you want to build a binary distribution to be deployed on multiple hosts, you may use:

     % make install DESTDIR=/path/to/destdir

This will install the binaries under DESTDIR/PREFIX, e.g., the user programs will install into DESTDIR/PREFIX/bin, the libraries into DESTDIR/PREFIX/lib, etc.

Note that if you want to test the build (see Testing the Build), you usually do not need to do a make install first.

Some implementations of make allow multiple commands to be run in parallel, for faster builds. We test our Makefiles in parallel builds with GNU make only; they may not be compatible with other parallel build implementations.
