    Where it will be installed.  You don't have to specify this UNLESS you do
not want to install it into /home/mailman.  If you don't specify a $prefix, it
will automatically install in /home/mailman.

    Don't specify a $prefix.  What you need to worry about are the
--with-mail-gid and --with-cgi-gid options.

    Hrm.  Been a while since any woman send (or gave) me kisses.  Thanks! :)

W | I haven't lost my mind; it's backed up on tape somewhere.
