Linux configure issue for Filezilla

Hi All,

The --prefix option for configure seems to be ignored when searching for idna.h, I have most programs installed in a non standard location as I do not have root access so I point prefix to the base location for my installs. This usually works, but not for Filezilla, to work around this I did the following:

I created an sh script and set a variable pointing to where I wished prefix to point to and then used the following:

CPPFLAGS="-I/usr/include -I/usr/X11R6/include -I$PREFIX/include"
LDFLAGS="-L/lib64 -L/usr/lib64 -L/usr/X11R6/lib64 -L$PREFIX/lib"
export LDFLAGS

configure --prefix=$PREFIX

This allowed configure to complete.
I had tried setting --includedir and --libdir, but neither of these worked.

Can this be fixed so all that needs to be set it the prefix location?

The prefix is just for where the binaries should be installed, the lookup works differently.

idna.h is checked for using the standard AC_CHECK_HEADER macro, so obviously you need to set proper preprocessor flags if idna.h is outside the standard search path of your compiler.
