PREFIX is now really a prefix #185

Since 8366ade the PREFIX is now truly a prefix.

A quick look around made me realise I have to "warn" package maintainers about this.

Debian and Slackware
uses PREFIX=/usr/bin should be /usr starting with the upcoming release @innir @conraid

FreeBSD (I maintain that package) and Gentoo patch using sed or equivalent, which can be removed for the next release @SpiderX

NixOS, VoidLinux, Fedora, OpenSuSE, Soleus and Arch Linux seem to not be using the make install or use INSTALL_ROOT instead of PREFIX in their build..

I will email all before releasing 1.1.4, this issue is mostly a reminder and a pre-heads up to the Debian and Gentoo package maintainer.
