The problem is that we asked for --prefix='', but configure
isn't honoring this argument and installation occurs with the
defaut $prefix (/usr/local).

(In other words, foo.2 should be installed in 
/local/build/automake-1.7.3/tests/testSubDir/_inst/man/man2/foo.2, not in

If you don't see this:

% cd tests
% env TESTS=man2.test make check -e
% grep '^prefix' testSubDir/config.log

then it's likely to be a bug in configure :(

(--prefix='' ought to be supported, because Hurd people use it)
