There should be no prefix setting in the Makefile.fpc, because the  
default prefix depends on the target operating system. Most Makefiles  
don't contain it, as I use INSTALL_PREFIX all the time to install  
e.g. the Mac OS X release to a temporary location for packaging it  
(so at least everything under /fpc is ok, except for possibly the  
text mode IDE, as it's not built/packaged for Mac OS X by default).

Which Makefile.fpc were you quoting from?
