This happens because you use prefix="$pkgdir/usr" during package(), does
the software not support DESTDIR?

If not, then you'll need to copy everything over by hand rather than
using make install. Or, if upstream is still alive, asking them to fix
their Makefile so it respects DESTDIR.

You could also fix the Makefile, and ship a patch alongside the
PKGBUILD, then apply it in prepare() via `patch`.
