From: Habib Alamin <firstname.lastname@example.org> This patchset fixes the Makefile's use of install to be compatible with BSD install by removing some flags which turned out to be not just incompatible, but also unnecessary in this case. I have tested this on macOS 12.1, but not GNU install, so while this fixes the Makefile for BSD isntall, it's possible it has regressed on GNU install, but I have outlined the justification for each change in the respective patch's commit message.

Using the `-p` flag is just pointless in this case. --- Makefile | 2 +- 1 file changed, 1 insertion(+), 1 deletion(-) diff --git a/Makefile b/Makefile index 07947a0..5565e63 100644 --- a/Makefile +++ b/Makefile @@ -36,7 +36,7 @@ clean: $(RM) -f hut doc/hut.1 hut.bash hut.zsh hut.fish install: - $(INSTALL) -dp \ + $(INSTALL) -d \ $(DESTDIR)$(PREFIX)/$(BINDIR)/ \ $(DESTDIR)$(PREFIX)/$(MANDIR)/man1/ \ $(DESTDIR)$(BASHCOMPDIR) \ -- 2.35.1

That said, we don't need to rely on that because the previous line which gives us the error about combining `-C` and `-d` is exactly the line that creates the required directories. --- Makefile | 4 ++-- 1 file changed, 2 insertions(+), 2 deletions(-) diff --git a/Makefile b/Makefile index 5565e63..90ddaef 100644 --- a/Makefile +++ b/Makefile @@ -42,8 +42,8 @@ install: $(DESTDIR)$(BASHCOMPDIR) \ $(DESTDIR)$(ZSHCOMPDIR) \ $(DESTDIR)$(FISHCOMPDIR) - $(INSTALL) -pm 0755 hut -t $(DESTDIR)$(PREFIX)/$(BINDIR)/ - $(INSTALL) -pm 0644 doc/hut.1 -t $(DESTDIR)$(PREFIX)/$(MANDIR)/man1/ + $(INSTALL) -pm 0755 hut $(DESTDIR)$(PREFIX)/$(BINDIR)/ + $(INSTALL) -pm 0644 doc/hut.1 $(DESTDIR)$(PREFIX)/$(MANDIR)/man1/ $(INSTALL) -pm 0644 hut.bash $(DESTDIR)$(BASHCOMPDIR)/hut $(INSTALL) -pm 0644 hut.zsh $(DESTDIR)$(ZSHCOMPDIR)/_hut $(INSTALL) -pm 0644 hut.fish $(DESTDIR)$(FISHCOMPDIR)/hut.fish -- 2.35.1
Seems like this doesn't regress with GNU tools. Both patches pushed, thanks!
