Don't use -D /. It leads to problems. It's far safer to build into a
destdir and then install that build into root. -D / causes SOO MANY
problems we specifically don't support (as in help folks with problems)

There is a new, the install one (forgot exact syntax), that will
install your built tree into /.

Take care,
