Not sure why you were not allowed to create a directory in /opt, but you shouldn't need to do that step anyway....usually the installation process creates that directory automatically.  If you need root access in Knoppix, this will be done during should su to root for the 'make install' command.
Does your source package contain a 'configure' script?  If so you can specify a target directory with "configure --prefix=/a/path".  I'm guessing configure wasn't included, though, since you mentioned only 'make'.

Using a /mnt/something for installation probably isn't a good idea, since the compiled program will likely be looking there...if you move your program it might end up with missing files.  If you don't have the space in /opt, you can create a symlink in /opt to /mnt/something.  Again, I'm not sure why you were not able to create a directory in /opt, but it may just be that you need root power.

If the source comes with a configure program usually typing ./configure --help will display all setable options. Many times there will be multiple options for alternate pathing.

Yes, try this:

sudo ln -s /mnt/hda3/opt /opt

and then point your compiler at /opt/lout and see if it works.

cbagger01 is right.  You have to at least trick the process into believing that it is going to install to /opt/lout, even though you are physically installing it to /mnt/hda1/opt/lout.  Therefore, the BINDIR has to be /opt/lout and the symlink has to be created.

Mikshaw and Roberts, unfortunately the lout package doesn't have ./configure so reidar cannot do as you suggested.  But if reidar decides to compile the sc.dsl and pspp.dsl (both GNU) as uci, then your suggestions will have to be followed.

More work ahead for you, reidar.  But don't flood ke4nt1 with your enthusiasm :)
