The defaults are sane. It's actually good practice to install stuff to  
/usr/local, to prevent people from accidentally overwriting the  
version provided by a distribution. If you do want to install it in  
the location that are used by *your* distro, you'll have to explicitly  
tell configure where this is (since this varies with distribution and  
architecture). Not all *NIX systems are alike.

Make sure there are no 'usbhid-ups' drivers running in the background.
