I know about the --prefix from GNU std.
The problem here is that gpgconf can not be reallocated.

Anyways, I will do a quick fix for myself. I will paste my solution in in case somebody
experiences the same issues.

For ages we use DESTDIR to do this:

  ./configure --prefix=/ROOTDIR
  make install DESTDIR=/foo/bar/PLATFORMROOT/ROOTDIR

See the Automake manual or the GNU coding standards for more details.
