   But DESTDIR doesn't take care of the includes used by the live build
   (i.e. "make DESTDIR=/testroot build" doesn't seem to install in, and
   then use use the /testroot/usr/include files; at least not in the
   95Jun03 source tar files.


# cd /usr/src/bin/ps
# ln -s / /foo           (*)
# make DESTDIR=/foo
cc -O  -nostdinc -idirafter /foo/usr/include -c /orb/q/src/src/bin/ps/fmt.c

(*) this is to get around depend problems.

this looks Just Fine to me.  in what way doesn't DESTDIR work for you ?
