Humm...how does 'make install --prefix=' relate to './configure
--prefix='? I'm certain that I've used the latter when I've built
Ardour by hand. Is placing Ardour where I want it no longer supported
at all under SCons at all? If not, then I need to change paths?

Not advocating any changes. Just trying to understand so the next time
I do build I don't get burned too badly.
