 The user manual contains this about prefixes:

 "A further reason not to use the standard prefix is to allow more than one
 version of RTEMS to exist on your host machine at a time. The autoconf and
 automake tools required by RTEMS are not versioned and vary between the
 various versions of RTEMS. If you use a single prefix such as the standard
 prefix there is a chance parts from a package of different versions may
 interact. This should not happen but it can.

 For POSIX or Unix hosts, the RTEMS Project uses /opt/rtems as it’s
 standard prefix. We view this prefix as a production level path, and we
 prefer to place development versions under a different prefix away from
 the production versions. Under this top level prefix we place the various
 versions we need for development. For example the version 4.11.0 prefix
 would be /opt/rtems/4.11.0. If an update called 4.11.1 is released the
 prefix would be /opt/rtems/4.11.1. These are recommendations and the
 choice of what you use is entirely yours. You may decide to have a single
 path for all RTEMS 4.11 releases of /opt/rtems/4.11."

 The default prefix selected by the RSB should take this into account. Use
 OS prefix + "rtems" + $rtems_version, e.g. on Linux for RTEMS 5:
