"sudo make install" creates root-owned build folders

Bug #1210358 reported by gue5t gue5t
This bug affects 1 person
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
Midori Web Browser
Fix Released

Bug Description

To reproduce:
$ bzr branch lp:midori
$ cd midori
$ ./configure && make
$ sudo make install
(optionally, to avoid leaving the fs dirty: $ sudo make uninstall)
$ cd ..
$ rm -rf midori

The last command fails with "permission denied".

Running "tree -pug" in the "midori" folder shows the following:
`-- [drwxr-xr-x me users ] _build
    `-- [drwxr-xr-x me users ] default
        `-- [drwxr-xr-x root root ] _build
            `-- [drwxr-xr-x root root ] data

I believe with cmake (bug 1211909) this is not an issue anymore - pleasedo re-open if you still spot any odd behavior.
