[Bug-ssw] installation of ssw and default path

I was unable to locate an installation of ssw via homebrew or apt.

As such, I've downloaded ssw 0.3 tar from http://alpha.gnu.org/gnu/ssw/ 
and performed the normal installation method

cd to directory



sudo make install

all looks normal, however in the documentation it mentions: "By default, 
`make install' installs the package's commands under `/usr/local/bin', 
include files under `/usr/local/include', etc." I've found that they're 
instead installed under '/usr/local/include' and '/usr/local/lib/'.

I'm not sure if this is an issue, but it seems that although i can see 
the produced files, it's not recognised as being installed. i'm trying 
to install it as a dependency for pspp, and it's incurring this problem:

configure: error: The following required prerequisites are not installed.
You must install them before PSPP can be built:
     spread-sheet-widget 0.3 (or use --without-gui)
