Subject: problem with installation of freeradius-server-2.1.9 


I downloaded the freeradius-server-2.1.9 and tried to install on my Linux box, I did './configure --prefix=/tmp/freeradius', 'make' and then 'make install', a problem appears in the 'make install'. The error messages are as the followings: 

libtool: install: error: cannot install `' to a directory not ending in /usr/local/lib 
gmake[6]: *** [install] Error 1 
gmake[6]: Leaving directory `/home/henrys/download/freeRadius/freeradius-server-2.1.9/src/modules/rlm_acctlog'

I had a libtool installed already on my Linux box under /usr/bin/libtool, which is an old version of the libtool (2.2.6 other than the one defined in freeradius-server-2.1.9 with libtool ver 2.2.8. I still want to keep the old one for other purposes. ) 

Can someone please point it out to me how I can install the freeradius on my Linux box? 

Cheers, Henry
