DESTDIR is only useful if the Makefile honors it, which this one does
not. Upstream here has also decided to put a _compile_ rule in an
_install_ target which is simply insane.

Honestly, the easiest route here is to munge the Makefile and/or provide
your own. You should also complain to upstream that their Makefile is
_not_ package friendly.
