No, that's another story. With --prefix, runtime search path are also
changed, e.g. scm files are search under
/home/abc/share/lilypond/2.5.x/scm. But with DESTDIR, runtime search
paths are not modified at all, just that every single file is installed
into another location, in order to avoid contaminating the building
