Ticket #45 (closed enhancement: wontfix)
A source build of HP recommends a non-standard use of 'sudo'
|Reported by:||Telemachus||Owned by:||duncan|

HP recommends 'sudo' twice - after the initial ./configure and after the 'make' step of building. This is not a show-stopper and experienced *nix folks can adjust 'sudo' to 'su' for a global install, but it strikes me as odd to consistently assume a use of 'sudo' that as far as I know applies by default only to a few distros (Ubuntu and OS X, not sure who all else).
