14<para><parameter>--prefix=/usr</parameter>: Previously mozilla did
15not support the make install option. Hence the package was installed in
16<filename>/opt</filename>. The package now supports "make install" and follows
17the <acronym>FHS</acronym> guidelines for installation. Hence the book now
18recommends installation in a system wide prefix such as <filename>/usr
19</filename>.</para>
