None of this would be necessary if you specified --prefix=/usr when you 
ran configure. The default prefix of /usr/local is only for those 
without root permission.

But as Josip says it's best to install the pre-built packages because 
the person doing the packaging already has all the little details which 
trip people up figured out. Using pre-built packages will save you a 
*lot* of headaches.
