153 <para><parameter>--libdir=/opt/texlive/&texlive-year;/texmf-dist;</parameter>:
154 This parameter ensures that the <filename class="directory">asymptote</filename>
155 directory will similarly overwrite any files installed by install-tl-unx.</para>
156
157 <para><parameter>--enable-gc=system</parameter>: this ensures that the system
158 version of <filename class="libraryfile">libgc.so</filename> will be used
159 instead of the version shipped with this package.</para>
160
161 <para><parameter>--with-latex= ... --with-context=</parameter>: These switches
162 ensure that style files and a tex file will be installed into the
163 <application>texlive</application> directories instead of creating a
164 <filename class="directory">texmf-local</filename> directory for them.</para>
165
166 <para>
167 <command>rm -fv /opt/texlive/.../asymptote.info</command>:
168 This deletes the file installed by <application>texlive</application>.
169 Exceptionally, asymptote will create an <filename
170 class="directory">asymptote/</filename> subdirectory for its own
171 <filename>asymptote.info</filename> even though a possibly older
172 version from <xref linkend="texlive"/> is in the main
173 <application>texlive</application>
174 <filename class="directory">info/</filename> directory. Both the
175 new version and the existing <filename>asy-faq.info</filename>
