	./configure --prefix=/lvm;

build and install everything.  Notice where the vgXX directories go:  /dev,
not /lvm.  None of the configure switches (last time I compiled) were able
to keep the vg's out of devfs's clutches w/o hacking a #define in the code.
As a temporary fix until all the devfs glitches are worked out (some not lvm
related) it'd be nice to avoid problems.
