Strange indeed, as it's taken into account here: binaries and man pages
are put into the 'prefix' location here. Could you post a log file of the

prt-get.conf is always going to /etc, no matter what you use as
prefix... there was a good reason to force it that way, which I
unfortunately don't remember. If you want /etc and /var to be prefix
relative, comment out lines 33 and 34 in configure.in. Yet, this only
affects files below /etc and /var and should not cause make(1) to
completely ignore "--prefix".

HTH, Johannes
