You can use ROX.
Right-click- sort by Date.
And activate the "show hidden"-icon.

Now you can browse your folders and see, where new files appeared.
Also, when you run "make install", the messages contain infos, where files are installed.

Typical locations:
/usr/local/bin
/usr/local/lib
/usr/local/share
/usr/local/include/programname/...
/root/.programname

Sometimes also
/usr/local/lib/programname/...


Files that go to /usr/local/lib should be moved to /usr/lib, as /usr/local/lib is not in Puppys library-path.

If it installs files to /usr/share/pixmaps, do NOT add this folder a dotpup.
In puppy, this folder is a symbolic link, that gets broken, when you extract files from an archive there. Then JWM and ROX will refuse working.
Instead, move the pictures to /usr/local/lib/X11/pixmaps

If you have files in /etc , they must me moved to /root/.etc for the Dotpup.

Also move /usr/local/lib/pkgconfig/programname.pc to
/usr/lib/pkgconfig/programname.pc
