It is ultimately your choice; i.e. you may use no options and go with the
default directories in the configure file. Or, you can use options, like
--prefix=, when you want to override the defaults. LFS wants such packages
in /usr. The typical default is /usr/local, therefore the --prefix=/usr
option is used. CAVEAT: If this is your first LFS system and you are not a
linux guru, do everything according to the book. Next time around you can
get creative. Type ./configure --help and look and all of the options.
