I'm not confident of this change but it seems that Debian packaging
system (and other packaging systems, I guess) expect such behavior.

Packaging systems expect that `make install PREFIX="somewhere non root
users can write"` works fine.

I guess PREFIX is likely set to something like /usr/local/

On my debian box:

fujita at lily:/usr/local$ ls
bin  etc  games  include  lib  man  sbin  share  src
