You are right, Tramp 2.1.4 has changed its behaviour here. ${prefix}
isn't used anymore in the makefiles, it is expanded already during the
configure step. Instead of, you might use lispdir=... and
infodir=... (or rerun ./configure with another prefix).

It's the question. At least the change was _intended_ due to another
problem. And the Tramp documentation does not speak about setting a
${prefix} variable during make IIRC. So I would'nt regard it as a
bug. But if people insist in this "feature" ...
