They end up in "/usr/share/emacs/site-lisp".

./configure expects a prefix, and assumes the directory structure
below the directory you give it. In this case it knows to put the .elc
files in "emacs/site-lisp" below the prefix.

The help for .configure hints at this. E.g:

  --infodir=DIR          info documentation [PREFIX/info]

They want you to provide the path to the directory which includes
"info", so you don't include "info" in the path you give it.

It's not obvious; it took me several tries to get it right (hence the
erratum :-) and I have some cleanup to do once locate has rebuilt its
database tonight.

Again, same thing. They end up in "/usr/share/info/tramp".
