... No. Something is wrong. Gimp does not specify any such thing.
In fact, I always had the impression that for SVN versions, prefix
defaulted to /usr/local.
This may actually be a problem with your autotools.
I can verify that mine accept my chosen prefix (/usr) without saying
anything more, I'm running

autoconf (GNU Autoconf) 2.61
automake 1.10 or 1.7 (yes, both.. normally programs use 1.10, some need 1.7)

on an installation of Ubuntu Hardy Heron.

What versions are you running (automake --version  / autoconf
--version) on what distribution?

Does the binary directory have anything to do with it? After all, babl
installs no binaries, only libraries (ie /usr/local/lib/)

configure exists for releases -- it's generated by autogen.sh. This is
normal for autotools-based software building.

Hope that helped,
