Hi Jesse, thank you for the prompt response. I should have mentioned,
I have tried what you have suggested and get the same issue; I believe
this is because certain directories are specified in Makefile.inc as


I could be wrong, but that seems to be the case, because when the
following line is run, it still attempts to use those directories
rather than creating them within the package directory:

${CC} -DLIB_DIR=\"${LIB_DIR}\" -DINC_DIR=\"${INC_DIR}\" -o
${BIN_DIR}/tsdl-config ${SRC_DIR}tools/getlibs.c

Again, though, I could be wrong about that, having never made nor
researched Makefiles in any detail.
