It is too a source build. Look, there, at the source files! And look at them
building!

The user can run configure with whatever paths they like. If they want
./configure --prefix=/usr, then that's great. If they want ./configure
--prefix=/opt/torque, then Bob's your uncle.

This mechanism is specifically designed to build an rpm (and subrpms) for the
builder following whatever options they want.

$ tar zxvf torque-whatever.tar.gz
$ cd torque-whatever
$ ./configure --prefix=/great --uncle=bob --what=ever
$ make rpm

Are tpackages also not source builds? Should we enforce some prefix on them
too?

Distros don't use the spec file in the tarball, so would they even care? Why
did Debian even look at the spec file, that they don't use, and don't
distribute in their .debs?
