brew install. It is a careful script; it can be run even if you have stuffinstalled in
/usr/local already. It tells you exactly what it will do beforeit does it too. You have to confirm everything it will do before it starts.

/tmpsubdirectories because Homebrew gets upset.
/opt/localbecause build scripts get confused when Homebrew is there instead of Fink or MacPorts, respectively.
However do yourself a favour and install to
/usr/local on macOS Intel,
/opt/homebrew on macOS ARM,and
/home/linuxbrew/.linuxbrew on Linux. Some things maynot build when installed elsewhere. One of the reasons Homebrew justworks relative to the competition is because we recommend installinghere. Pick another prefix at your peril!
