Could you post the exact errors?

I just tested this again with module-init-tools-3.1 and --prefix="",
and it came out correctly for me.  I am using a DESTDIR, but it
shouldn't matter.  prefix in Makefile is not getting set to
/usr/local.  I also tried with --prefix= and --prefix=/ and it came
out the same.

What version of module-init-tools are you using?  IIRC, this was an
issue in 3.2.1 and 3.2.2.
