Subject: Re: [OMPI users] rpmbuild defining opt install path
From: Lloyd Brown (lloyd_brown_at_[hidden])

That's a really good idea. The trouble is that I need to have multiple
versions installed (eg. compiled with the various compilers), so I think
I still need to manipulate name in some way, so the packages will be
named differently. But _prefix should definitely give me more
flexibility as to where it's installed.
