That is the way to go. The build system tries to avoid picking  up stuff from 
the install prefix but clearly it's not 100% successful. Even if you get past 
the build problem you may then run into runtime problems as qpidd tries to load 
configuration from <prefix>/etc and modules from the <prefix>/lib. The make 
check tests are supposed to use --no-module-dir and --no-config-dir to avoid 
this but when running tests by hand its a pain.

Same thing - different prefixes. In my case I usually have an RPM packaged 
version in /usr and my own build in ~/install. I still manage to shoot myself in 
the foot occasionally by forgetting about external modules (e.g. the msgstore) 
that are hanging around in ~/install/lib from an old build. rm -rf ~/install 
solves the problem.

BTW if you're building and installing a lot you can do make install-exec, which 
doesn't install all the devel headers and so is much faster. (This won't work on 
revisions before 1083077)
