Yeah - I'd recommend doing it via configure options. Doing it by moving the files could result in the binaries looking in the wrong location for their config files.
The output of the autoconf ./configure stage is normally a config.h file that is '#include'-ed in the source code, which produces build-time hardcoded values. This is how the binaries usually know where to find stuff based on the --prefix=
The option is usually --sysconfdir or similar. ./configure --help will show it.
