Ahh! Don't do that! That's your problem. You should never change
"prefix" during the install phase.
Is this part of some packaging system? Or do you want it to live in
If the former, then you should use DESTDIR (and you'll need to use
LIBRARY_PATH -- see the RPM spec file for an example). If the latter,
then you don't need to set prefix at all during the install phase.
NEVER should you set 'prefix' during install. In no world is it ever
the "right way" to install into a separate subdir.
