Hey Takashi, I performed the requested steps, but the output is still 
correct (e.g. /lib/... and not /opt/staging/alsa/lib/...).  As stated in 
the reply to Alex, the only place that path (from the error message) is 
used during the compile process is during the 'make' call using 
DESTDIR.  Other than that, the paths are root based and don't use the 
/opt/staging/alsa prefix.  Other thoughts?
