That is, where should this work in the spkg build process? My sense is that it should work almost immediately - even before Python, right? - but sometimes I get the message about it not working in the middle of a build I need to `./sage -sh` in to set environment variables correctly.
I should point out that currently I have a lot of stuff built - Python, Pari, GSL, ecl, elliptic curves - but when I do what the message says (edit `$SAGE_ROOT` in `./sage`) then I just get a message about `sage-sage` not existing in `local/bin`, which it is true, it does not.
An acceptable answer to this could include any *other* way to set the appropriate variables during a build.kcrismanWed, 24 Aug 2011 07:49:59 -0500http://ask.sagemath.org/question/8290/
