Re: No afterstep binary after compilation

My apologies for the delay in responding.

By default (without --prefix=PREFIX) AS installs its binaries to
/usr/local/bin.  Were there any compilation problems during the 'make' at all? 
A simple './configure ; make ; make install' will run all three of those
commands whether any of them complete and exit cleanly or not.

Hope I can be of assistance,
