That prefix is not doing what you think it is.

As you can see, you told configure your prefix was emacs-install
but emacs considers the prefix to be the full path.  This is consistent
with most other software.  The real prefix is 
/home/rejeep/emacs-install.

You should really explain what you are trying to do because you are way
off base with your approach.
