'configure -prefix=/usr' (which is the default in debian/rules). This was
last friday and I did not have time to check it further.

If you want to take it and see if you can make if work feel free to
do so.. I found this at www.seoul.org and given the current thread on
educational software for Linux I thought it would be interesting to include
