problems with "configure" options

currently I want to rebuild the RTEMS snapshot (20020118) 
without killing my previous installations on my computer. 
Things work rather fine with the toolset, I have 
GCC/Binutils/Newlib in a dedicated installation directory 


instead of 


Now things get a bit in the wrong direction: I try to prepare 
the RTEMS library build with:

../rtems-ss-20020118/configure  --enable-rtemsbsp="mbx860_002 
mbx821_001" --target=powerpc-rtems --prefix=/opt/rtems/ss-
20020118;make all

and everything compiles right. But when I try to install the 
system with 

make install

I find out, that part of the system still installs to


and not to


as given in the prefix option of "configure".

I found out, that the "prefix" is not propagated to the 
subdirectories. In the "top-level" Makefile, "prefix" is set 
to the right value, but under "./power-pc/c/Makefile", prefix 
is once again "/opt/rtems".

Any ideas what might go wrong?

Ah, yes, I am working on a SuSE7.3 Linux with autoconf V2.52 
and automake 1.4-p5

any help welcome...
