Shouldn't be relevant, but is that --prefix path really where you want
to install emacs to? Also, while it usually works it's not normally
recommended to build in a sub-dir of the source tree, a better option
would be for example if your source tree is at src/emacs/trunk to build
in src/emacs/build.
