$ ./configure
$ make bootstrap

Then I edited the Makefile to use ${prefix}=/scratchdisk/myfolder and ran

$ make install

But this fails as make tries to install _some_ files in /usr/local/share/

How do I ask make to install everything in /scratchdisk/myfolder ?

  $ make distclean
  $ ./configure prefix=/scratchdisk/myfolder
  $ make
  $ make install

Also can I remove my build directory after `make install' succeeds?
(short on disk space)

Yes.

Thank you Eli and Lennart. Alls well now. :)
