This is the best approach - if you want your own install
locations, start with these defaults and work backwards.

Basically you need to tell the build system where to put things,
otherwise you get the configure defaults.  For packages like
xfsprogs, there is a need to install to several places that do
not have "standard" configure targets, so I had to get creative
with using the targets configure does provide - in particular,
we want to differentiate where runtime libs go from where devel
libs go - there is no simple way to do that, and so the defaults
we get are a bit wacky for that one (runtime libs use libdir, so
devel libs ended up in libexecdir).

cheers.
