What few times I have done or tried to do packaging, I found the same
thing that you have.

I applied your patch and changed _prefix to /usr/local, and the RPM did
build properly.  rpm -qlp on the produced RPM shows that the /usr files
are all put in  /usr/local/ except for the /usr/share/doc files.

Confirmed Mandriva 2006 is the same as your SUSE:

$ rpm --showrc | grep configure | grep prefix
  %{-C:${_mydir}}%{!-C:.}/configure %{_target_platform} --prefix=%{_prefix} --exec-prefix=%{_exec_prefix} --bindir=%{_bindir} --sbindir=%{_sbindir} --sysconfdir=%{_sysconfdir} --datadir=%{_datadir} --includedir=%{_includedir} --libdir=%{_libdir} --libexecdir=%{_libexecdir} --localstatedir=%{_localstatedir} --sharedstatedir=%{_sharedstatedir} --mandir=%{_mandir} --infodir=%{_infodir} %* ;

Thank-you for your kind help.
