Doesn't that set a --prefix in configure?

Normally, you would want --prefix to be where it's to be finally
installed, but have make install write to a different location (like
/tmp/swishe).  --prefix is used to set paths for where things are
expected to be when the program runs, so if you use prefix to install
to /tmp and then tar and untar in, say, $HOME/swish-e then the
compiled in paths will still point to /tmp/swish-e.
