After running Configure and manually adjusting the paths I can't 
reproduce the problem anymore.

It is possible that I forget to remove the source directory used in 
chapter 5 and it was some kind of caching problem, but I can't reproduce 
that situation either:

If I start with an clean perl source, configure it with prefix /usr, 
make and install it and then run configure with prefix /dummy the /dummy 
is totally ignored. If this was the original problem, I would expect the 
configure script to install the perl binary in /dummy and the man pages 
in /usr.

If I find a way to reproduce this I will let you know.
