      Ensim is software that is used to make a server do virtual

with Red Hat Linux 7.x.

      I love this list!  Never seen an altinstall mentioned, but they I'm 
still crawling.  Apparently this does the same thing as make install except 
it does not create (or replace) a hard link of the new version to "python".
      Doing some searching on this I'm seeing reference to using the 
--prefix option with configure to name the directory that it will be 
installed to.  Is this necessary, or is it only for installing the files in 
a directory other than the current one?

Thanks for any enlightenment!
