Bug Type: *Install and Config
Assigned To: 

Many systems have different libraries installed in different
locations. So using --prefix would not be a good solution.

Just create a install script in which you can use some $PREFIX variable
or something like that.

--prefix is usually used to indicate the prefix of the path where 'make install'
should copy libs/binaries/header files.

A suggestion:

Please use --prefix when looking for things.

I ran configure with many arguments like:
when the directory would not have been needed if either
the --prefix was tried first, or if it used the
CPPFLAGS and LDFLAGS and LIBS to find things.
