Hi Zewdu,

I am glad you found this, because I would have never thought that you
were not in the src directory when you ran 'configure' :-)

Our UDUNITS expert is out of the office at the moment, so the following
may not be exactly correct.  Please bear with me...

A quick read of the src/configure script shows that one can set the
directory in which binaries will get installed by specifying the
'--bindir' flag on the 'configure' command line.  It seems like this
would look like:

cd src
./configure --bindir=/home/zewdu/bin
make install

Again, I am not the expert on UDUNITS, so this may be incorrect.  I can
tell you that one of the options that can be specified on the
'configure' command line will be the one that needs setting.  You can
get a list of the flags that are supported as follows:

./configure --help

>Thanks for you help again.

No worries.
