Yes, you can specify --libdir at configure time.  Note for system
installations you will usually have to set more options, for
example --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc.  The idea of the GNU coding
standards is that all packages allow to be configured in this way, so
that you can adjust all packages to your system specific layout in the
same way.
