Hi Larry,

Yep.  Try, on a clean area,

    ./configure &&
    make all check &&
    make prefix=/tmp/groffpkg install

configure's --prefix sets the run-time location, which is also used by
default by make's install target -- fair enough.  You can override that
at install time without effecting the path built into the installables.

I think I've got the above lines right.  GNU Stow uses this technique
all the time, it's documentation will cover it.
