For this to work you would need support from your Makefile.

Automake, if you use it, provides for two possibilities.
One is DESTDIR.  This might or might not work in your case.

The other possibility is only available if the package is
written correctly.  The idea is to `configure' and `make all' with the
logical prefix and then `make install' with the actual prefix.

    ./configure --prefix=/usr/local
    make bindir=/afs/ \
         ... set other install dirs here ...

I think this mode is supported by most GNU tools.
