CFEngine3 Install on CentOS 5.7

Today I was tasked with installing CFEngine3 on CentOS-5.7 (A little outdated). When installing CFEngine-3.3.1 I kept getting an error that I couldn’t find libtokyocabinet.so.9. I had to set my prefix to /usr/ because the location that tokyocabinet was installing my libraries to was not being read by CFEngine’s make script.
To do this (I am using tokyocabinet 1.4.47)

wget http://fallabs.com/tokyocabinet/tokyocabinet-1.4.47.tar.gz
tar -xzvf tokyocabinet-1.4.47.tar.gz
cd tokyocabinet-1.4.47/
./configure --prefix=/usr/
make
sudo make install

Then I was able to ./configure && make && make install cfengine3 without any problems.

So my overall script looked something like this:

wget http://fallabs.com/tokyocabinet/tokyocabinet-1.4.47.tar.gz
tar -xzvf tokyocabinet-1.4.47.tar.gz
cd tokyocabinet-1.4.47/
./configure --prefix=/usr/
make
sudo make install
wget http://cfengine.com/source-code/download?file=cfengine-3.3.1.tar.gz
tar -xzvf cfengine-3.3.1.tar.gz
cd cfengine-3.3.1
./configure
make
sudo make install
sudo cp /var/cfengine/bin/cf-* /usr/bin/
