Install popt by running the following commands:
patch -Np1 -i ../popt_1.7-5.diff && ./configure --prefix=/usr && cp configure.in configure.ac && touch configure.in configure.ac && make
To test the results, issue: make check.
Now, as the root user:
cp configure.in configure.ac: Because configure.in is updated with the patch, this file is needed for make to work properly.
touch configure.in configure.ac: Ensure file timestamps are the same.
