The comma is OK, but it makes the sentence sound a little bit ungraceful.
"depends" should be "depending".  Since the two phrases mean the same
thing (emphasizing the original location), you could rewrite to eliminate
the comma altogether, something like:

"Remember that when you are updating a previously installed version of
leafnode, you need to configure the new version of leafnode to overwrite
the old version.  You do this with the "configure --prefix" option.
For example, if leafnode had been previously installed in /opt, you
would configure leafnode with the command "./configure --prefix=/opt".
