I noticed that the --prefix=/usr used on just about every configure in LFS 
makes the compiling process put things in /usr/* as oppossed to /usr/local/*

Gerard, why did you choose to do this?  Is there a functionality issue 
putting things in /usr as opposed to /usr/local directory, is it merely a 
personal preference, is it a standard somewhere...?
