Except for the `mzscheme' and `mred' executables, everything in "bin"
is a launcher script that runs them.  Mixing such launchers from an
in-place build (one without a `--prefx') to a unix-style build (with
it) is a bad idea, since the launchers will in general look for the
binary executables in different ways.

Running `make install' after `configure --prefix=/whevever' *should*
work.  If it didn't then please look through the output (of `make
install'), it might have some errors that will point at the problem.
