I don't think that's a supported syntax: we may hardcode the prefix
passed to configure (or paths derived from it) in more places than the
Make variable $(prefix).

Couldn't you just pass --prefix=/usr/local/packages/subversion-1.9.3 to

Perhaps you could make use of DESTDIR, e.g., «make install DESTDIR=/foo»
followed by using stow to link the files installed to /foo into /usr/local.

Try --disable-shared --enable-static without --enable-all-static.
