Im a relativly new webfaction user, and was wondering if it was possible to run irssi. when i download the source and run ./configure it says "GLIB is required to build irssi.".
I tried downloading GLIB but that needed libffi, so i downloaded libffi. "./configure" works fine, as does "make". When i try to do "make install" it seems to be trying to install to /usr/local/lib which obviously is results in permission denied.
How can i tell it to install to my home directory and then tell the GLIB "./configure" where to find it.
Is there an easier way of doing this? is it even possible?
