Most of the time, configure by itself will assume /usr/local as a
prefix.  You should use autogen.sh and usrinst.sh for Sword
configuration and installation:


Hack usrinst.sh ahead of time to change options as needed but note that
it includes --prefix=/usr.  Be wary of default selections that might not
suit you, e.g. libdir setting for 64-bit if you're 32-bit.
