Hmmm.... a little bit strange feature request, I think.  I'm not sure of the
usefulness of this, because --prefix=`pwd` is more for developers than for end
users and developers should not need such convinience mappings. At least
--prefix options are never intended to have relative paths. So I would more
vote to add another test which makes sure the argument of --prefix starts with
a slash.
