tla has a very conservative installation script.   I think it's wrong
to, by default, shove everything into /usr/local.

Therefore, if you do not provide a --prefix option to configure, tla
is installed -- but in a subdir of the build directory.  This is
actually useful behavior if you then use symlinks or dirstacks to
manage your big catch-all directories like /usr/local.

To have tla installed somewhere outside of the build-dir, you _must_
provide a --prefix option to configure.   As in:

        ../configure --prefix /usr/local
