Hi Peter,

There is a Yaws mailing list (), which
you should probably use.

However:
--prefix tells configure where to install the application, not where to
find programs from.
Maybe there is a better way, but you can for instance do this:
ERLC=/home/peter/erlang/bin/erl ERL=/home/peter/erlang/bin/erl ./configure
