Try removing the spurious space in your command, giving:
        ./configure --prefix=/usr
or use the space without "=":
        ./configure --prefix /usr

Either of these should solve your problem.  The way you have it, "="
is being interpreted as the first character of the path name (don't
forget that "=" is legal as a directory name).
