    55With 2.47 DESTDIR installs only work if DESTDIR=/some/where has been exported before make install is invoked, otherwise (make DESTDIR=/some/where install) after a few seconds it will complain there is no rule to make target DESTDIR=/some/where.
     6This seems to have been fixed in 2.49.

    9 For systems built on gcc-6.1, 3D drawings (or at least those using a non-zero render value) now need asy to be invoked with a -V flag, otherwise asy will fail. In a Makefile this does not cause any problems, but if for some reason you are running asy from the commandline on a plain .asy file there are gains and losses - you get a nice viewer which will allow you to rotate the image in all planes, but there is no way of saving the created image. I (ĸen) surmise that using asy outside latex is a very uncommon activity.
     10If these are set in the environment, configure picks them up. If not, it defaults CFLAGS to '-g -O3' (-O3 in modern gcc is not especially firendly to debugging) and does not strip the binary. You may prefer to set your own CFLAGS. More importantly, if CXXFLAGS is not set, in 2.49 that gets set to -std=c++11. If you do set your own CFLAGS, you might want to ensure that version is added for this package.
