    @micah good findings, I keep chipping away at them. The extra `make` leftovers should
be gone with the latest commit.
    
    Could you post the `install.mk` in the top level of your tarball extraction here?I don’t
see why your code should try to mkdir `/usr/local/couchdb`, I get `mkdir: /var/lib/couchdb:
Permission denied` with `./configure -p ../somereldir` and that’s expected:
    
    At this point, if you change the prefix with `-p` you also likely want to override the
data dir, view dir and log file (`-d -v -l`) as they default to system paths as per FHS and
are not affected by the prefix (see below). I have a todo item to make the `./configure` arguments
a little more intuitive and work like in 1.x (and other Autotools projects), so expect that
to get better.
    
    ```
    data_dir = /var/lib/couchdb
    view_index_dir = /var/lib/couchdb
    log_file = /var/log/couchdb.log
    ```
