Ingo Weinhold, one of the developers of the Haiku OS, explained in [1] that on
this OS
  - /boot/common is the equivalent of /usr/local on Unix,
  - /boot/home/config is the equivalent of $HOME on Unix.

There is no /usr/local on this system; therefore the default $prefix used by
configure is not working. Here is a suggestion for telling the users of
GNU software on this OS.

        * doc/install.texi (Particular Systems): Add a recommendation which
        prefix to use on Haiku.

  of these programs are available in @code{/usr/bin}.  So, if you need
  @code{/usr/ucb} in your @env{PATH}, put it @emph{after} @code{/usr/bin}.
+ On Haiku, software installed for all users goes in @file{/boot/common},
+ not @file{/usr/local}.  It is recommended to use the following options:
+ @example
+ ./configure --prefix=/boot/common
+ @end example
