Also PREFIX is set in StdGNU.mk.  Why is it also set in Tools.mk ?
Configure scripts have a very common option, --prefix, which is saved
into Tools.mk as PREFIX, this is what should be used as prefix for

I know that.  But given that the configure is just for the tools
build, should we honour PREFIX from Config.mk (and ./.config or
command line arguments) or from ./configure ?

I think the one from configure, since we have a configure script, better make use of it, that is what users expect. I will resend this patch with the above changes to config/Linux.mk, is that ok?
