I'm trying to understand what I am reading so I have tried to re-write
the sentences to my understanding.
We recommend you DO NOT use the standard prefix when installing the
RTEMS Tools. The standard prefix is the default prefix each package
built by the RSB contains. If you are building the tools when
logged in as a Standard User and not as the Super User (root) or
Administrator the RTEMS Source Builder (RSB) will fail and report an
error if the default prefix is not writable. We recommend you leave
the standand prefix for the packages your operating system installs or
software you manually install such as applications.
 I don't understand this line at all. Does that mean "The standard
prefix is the default prefix as defined by each package within an
RSB." or does it mean "All packages within an RSB build (bset) will
install to the standard OS prefix if an alternative is not provided."
I think the later?
Here is my rewrite:
The RTEMS Source Builder requires the installation(?) prefix to be a
writable path. All packages within an RSB build (bset) will install to
the standard OS prefix if an alternative is not provided. Building to
the standard prefix WILL fail if built as the standard user. Building
under a privileged user will install cross compile tools into the OS
path. We recommend you set the installation(?) prefix using either the
--prefix command line option or .... . It is best practice to leave
the standard OS prefix operating system use. Again, we recommend you
DO NOT use the standard OS installation prefix when installing the
RTEMS Tools from the Source Builder.
