I've skimmed over the tarball, but didn't find anything that would
indicate that it needed --prefix=... specified twice (because that is
what "%configure --prefix=..." would do -- it already specifies
--prefix=/usr). In fact the tarball looks like just an ordinary "make
dist" generated one, I can only find "/usr/local" at the obvious places,
namely in the configure script when looking for headers and libraries
and as the default prefix (which should get overridden when using
--prefix (once)).

I don't have all the E17 stuff installed, so I can't run configure
properly, but if you could run it twice (first time with "%configure",
second with "%configure --prefix=/usr") and send me the build log
(privately, no need to spam the list) perhaps we can figure out what
goes wrong here.
