I thought I answered this in an earlier thread. It's PREFIX rather
than prefix. It's not documented, but
I assumed that people would just look at Makefile and especially
Makeconf. There used to be alot
of packages that used PREFIX for make install w/o GNU autotools and
their sophistry. However,
such packages are getting to be a rarity. Of course, all ESS needs to
know about is the emacs installation.
However, we could probably add DESTDIR as an alias or maybe some docs.
What a radical concept!
