Weel the above is not a command but the way to set variables in the
shell.  Programs won't pick these variabales up unless you do either


or for setting it for the entire session you need to mark the variable:

  export NAME

after that all programs can access this variable.  Now to run the actual
binary you have to type the name of the program:


assuming you are in the top build directory or you add it to your PATH


(An "export" command for PATH has already been done by tye shell)

The parent directory.  I suggest that you read up a bit on Unix shell
use because all build instructions are written under the assumption that
is is known.

Yes, I know that this is the gnupg-isers mailing liste and we should not
assume that all subscribers are Unix gurus.  However, in the past that
seems to have been the case. 



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
