I was browsing some PKGBUILD on AUR and it seems there are two ways of
running the autoconf configure script.
One, is the more frequent `./configure --prefix=/usr` and the other is
`./configure --prefix=$pkgdir/usr`.

I was wondering if one is more correct than the other? Are there any
downsides to using the second one?
