If I may jump in here. The complete configure should at least set
--prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc --libexecdir=/usr/sbin

The rest is typically automagically correct. However, it would be
nice to check if the local state directory is configured as well:


Some packages don't know that setting then it's all one of course.

Nope. From `info gcc':

     Add the directory DIR to the head of the list of directories to be
     searched for header files.  This can be used to override a system
     header file, substituting your own version, since these
     directories are searched before the system header file
     directories.  If you use more than one `-I' option, the
     directories are scanned in left-to-right order; the standard
     system directories come after.
