  When installing freeradius version 1.1.1 from source I ran into a
problem with the make files.  Using --prefix=/usr/local/freeradius-1.1.1
fails to create the libs directory and places the lib files files in
${prefix}.  Using --prefix=/usr/local works just fine.


 FAILS: ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/freeradius-1.1.1

 WORKS: ./configure --prefix=/usr/local


./configure --prefix=/usr/local/freeradius-1.1.1 --with-large-files
make install
