Thank you for correcting the previously reported bug. 

Section 1.2.6 Installation for non-privileged users of the manual describes a 
procedure to install as non-root user, however these instructions are flawed,
 as has been reported previously on this list before a few years ago. 

Slightly related: ./configure --prefix="$HOME" should never ever try to write 
anything below /usr. Not recognizing that as a bug is also a failure. (This has
been reported before by someone else and the answer was basically RTFM. ) I 
no problems with RTFM, but in this case it's a problem of WTFM [1]

To make this bug report complete, via:
./configure--prefix="$HOME" && make && make 
install, I obtain among other messages that the install programs wants to
 delete /usr/share/texmf/tex/latex/preview/preview.sty.
