No I didn't add any options. The slashes appear after deleting config.status and running ./configure. They are there in the newly generated config.status.

The Makefile constructs the value assigned to JACALDIR by doing:

  jacallibdir = $(libdir)jacal/

  echo JACALDIR=$(DESTDIR)$(jacallibdir) >> jacal-script

The value of libdir comes from "config.status".  The default "config.status" has no extra slashes on my system.  Did you give options to configure?

I get the following error each time after re-installing and running JACAL.

;Loading "/usr/local/lib/slib/mitscheme.init"...
;  Loading "/usr/local/lib/slib/require.scm"... done
;... done
;Directory contains null component: ("usr" "local" "lib" "" "jacal")
;To continue, call RESTART with an option number:
; (RESTART 1) => Return to read-eval-print level 1.

It is due to double slash in jacal script that resides in /usr/local/bin (in my case):

And also in /usr/local/lib/jacal/go.scm, where it is:
(slib:load "/usr/local/lib//jacal/math")

After I delete one of the slashes in both files it works, but the problem reappears when re-installing.
