The ./configure option determines where ardour actually runs.

The `make install' option provides a way for packagers to temporarily
install the program in a different filesystem location.  The scons
equivalent is DESTDIR=/some/package/directory.

You probably don't need this.  Normally, you compile on the same
system where you will be running ardour and install it in the expected
location.  All you need for that is `./configure --prefix=/usr', or
`scons PREFIX=/usr'.
