Problems with installing to /etc and /var

I am running freeradius-1.0.4 from source, on SLES 9.0.  I want to install
freeradius so that it uses /etc and /var, and not /usr/local/etc and /usr/local/var.

If I do:

/usr/local/src/freeradius-1.0.4 # make clean && make distclean

/usr/local/src/freeradius-1.0.4 # ./configure --disable-shared --without-rlm_x99_token --prefix=/ --localstatedir=/var --sysconfdir=/etc --exec-prefix=/ --bindir=/usr/local --sbin=/usr/local --libexec=/usr/local --datadir=/usr/local --libdir=/usr/local --includedir=/usr/local --oldincludedir=/usr/local --infodir=/usr/local --mandir=/usr/local && make 

Why do I receive this error message:

/usr/local/src/freeradius-1.0.4 # src/main/radiusd
Fri Jul  8 15:49:43 2005 : Info: Starting - reading configuration files ...
radiusd: Couldn't open /usr/local/var/log/radius/radius.log for logging: Permission denied
  (rlm_exec: Wait=yes but no output defined. Did you mean output=none?)

There should be no reference to:

	Couldn't open /usr/local/var/log/radius/radius.log

Full logs of configure and make are viewable at:

Additionaly, why isn't there a Makefile method for deinstallation?
