I ran into a similar issue with projects I converted to automake where the 
developers were used to having all binaries, libraries, and headers end up in 
the root of the source tree under bin, lib, and include, respectively.  My 
answer to them was to

./configure --prefix=`pwd`
make install

That seemed to satisfy their needs.  Hope that helps.
