> What is the correct prefix for installing the 64 bit compile?
There is no right answer here. Personally when I build my own package of
*anything* I pick a custom prefix for it so as not to interfere with my
system packages... Usually I'll checkout/clone into a new folder e.g.
And when I build/configure I'll typically use:
/home/colin/Development/foobar/build and when I pick a prefix, I usually
When I want to run said app, I just set LD_LIBRARY_PATH and PATH
appropriately and knock myself out.
Distro provided packages are typically held in a /usr prefix with libdir
sometimes set to /usr/lib64 for 64 bit systems (that's how we do it on
Mandriva but not sure about other distros).

Well, I think you're trying to manually copy things about here which
doesn't sound like a very wise thing to do to be honest. I'd either use
a custom prefix that wont clobber your system packages or I'd just build
the source as an RPM that you can easily remove/upgrade etc later.
