Greetings 

regarding texlive2011 installation:-

(A)
this page
http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/blfs/view/cvs/pst/texlive.html

says:-
Note  
 If you passed the option --enable-shared to the configure command, the two 
libraries, ibkpathsea.so, libptexenc.so and their symbolic links will also 
need to be copied to /usr/lib


However it does not say how this is done ,  i.e the destination directory   
for libkpathsea.so and libptexenc.so

I have also  checked this page:-
http://www.tug.org/texlive/doc/install-tl.html


Bu I am still unsure what the directory structure of /opt/texlive is and thus 
where the libraries mentioned  above go.  

--------

(B)
The latter link also mentioned   calling 'install-tl' with  the "-custom-bin 
path" switch 
which says:-
{
If you have built your own binaries for your system (probably because your 
platform was not supported by TeX Live out of the box), this option allows you 
to give the path to a directory where the binaries for the current system are 
present. The installation will continue as usual, but at the end all files 
from path are copied over to bin/custom in your installation folder and this 
directory will be added to the path for the post-install actions
{

Does this mean that we could do a normal make install  without the 
make DESTDIR=$PWD/livetex-tmp install  mentioned on former link?

Advice on (A) and (B) would be appreciated.

Yours sincerely
