I often do an equivalent of

        make prefix=/home/gitster
        make prefix=/home/gitster install

and never saw this.  I do not use ./configure, and am not actively
involved in maintaining that part of the system.

Among the people who touched and aclocal.m4 in the past
18 months, Stefano seems to be the most clueful with that part of
the system, and among those who touched perl/Makefile.PL during the
same period, I suspect Jonathan may know a thing or two about
MakeMaker, so let's see if we can get help from these directions...
