in the src/INSTALL file it mentions using "make VIMRCLOC=/etc
VIMRUNTIMEDIR=/usr/share/vim", here's a qote :

Unix: PUTTING vimrc IN /etc

Some Linux distributions prefer to put the global vimrc file in /etc, and the
Vim runtime files in /usr.  This can be done with:
	./configure --prefix=/usr
	make VIMRCLOC=/etc VIMRUNTIMEDIR=/usr/share/vim MAKE="make -e"
