Installing phyx without sudo

I saw this phylogenetics package today, phyx:

To install without admin rights/sudo I needed to do the following (my software is installed in my home ~/software, rather than e.g. /usr, /usr/local):

Compile armadillo as follows

cmake -DINSTALL_PREFIX=$(HOME)/software
make install

Compile nlopt as follows

./configure --with-cxx --without-octave --without-matlab --prefix=$(HOME)/software
make install

Compile phyx as follows (slightly hacky, maybe there’s a ‘proper’ way)

./configure --prefix=$(HOME)/software

change line 11 of the Makefile (CPP_LIBS) to add the library path:

CPP_LIBS = -L$(HOME)/software/lib -llapack -lblas -lpthread -lm

change line 23 of the Makefile (OPT_FLAGS) to add the include path/CPPFLAGS:

OPT_FLAGS := -O3 -std=c++11 -fopenmp -I$(HOME)/software/include

then you can run

make install
