-Use the included ./preconfigure script to set these quickly.
 Interesting options
     "/usr/local/lib" etc. An installation prefix other than "/usr/local"
     can be given using "--prefix", for example "--prefix=$HOME"
-    --prefix=PREFIX     installation prefix (configuration) [default: '/usr/local/']
-    --destdir=DESTDIR   installation root [default: '']
+    --prefix=PREFIX     installation prefix (configuration) ['/usr']
+    --destdir=DESTDIR   installation root []
 ``configure`` also accepts some other, not widely useful, options.  Run
 ``configure --help`` for more details.
