When I run,

./configure --prefix=/home/hemmecke/software/

I see at the end...

checking for glaring installation conflicts... ouch!

configure: WARNING: Conflicting previous installation in
`/usr/share/emacs/23.1/site-lisp/auctex/' found!
Conflicting previous startup file
`/usr/share/emacs/23.1/site-lisp/preview-latex.el' found!

configure: creating ./config.status

Full trace is here ...

What does that mean?
What can I do if I have no root access on that machine?

Further... "make" seems to work fine, but then for "make install" I get

>make install
./mkinstalldirs /usr/share/emacs/site-lisp
rm -f /usr/share/emacs/site-lisp/auctex/tex-site.el # Remove old
(CVS-version) mistakes
test ! -f /usr/share/emacs/site-lisp/tex-site.el || { \
           if grep -q "tex-site.*Don't edit."
/usr/share/emacs/site-lisp/tex-site.el; then \
            echo "Overwriting old tex-site.el" ; \
           else \
            echo "Renaming old tex-site.el to" ; \
            mv /usr/share/emacs/site-lisp/tex-site.el
/usr/share/emacs/site-lisp/ ; \
           fi; \
if test Xno = Xno; \
        then /usr/bin/install -c -m 644 tex-site.el
/usr/share/emacs/site-lisp ; \
        else rm -f /usr/share/emacs/site-lisp/tex-site.el ; \
/usr/bin/install: cannot create regular file
`/usr/share/emacs/site-lisp/tex-site.el': Permission denied
make: *** [install-el] Error 1

Why on earth does the installation procedure complain about a /usr/share
directory? I've set --prefix. Is that a bug in the install procedure?
