Summary0001236: non-root make install with local prefix broken

after configure --prefix=$HOME/arch/$ARCH
then make install
/bin/mkdir: cannot create directory `/usr/lib64/tcl8.4/graphviz-2.17': Permission denied
Additional Information

Is this related to the issue of installing against various interpreters?

In any case it's a new error - I used to run "make install" cleanly.

[ellson] s, this is the problem we talked about. You now need root priviledges to run make install, even if your --prefix is writable, because
library extensions are install where the language wants them.

I'm not happy with this either. I agree that this is a bug.

For a long time now it has been possible install without root permissions. Possibly some language bindings will not be found automatically by the script language, but that can be worked around in that language.
