I think you need to be more specific with what you want, when you say you
don't want to change directory structure.  --prefix doesn't change the
directory structure, it just relocates the entire hierarchy.  For instance, if
I run configure with --prefix=/foo/bar the binaries will be in /foo/bar/bin
the man pages will be in /foo/bar/man etc.  If you want everything to go
to /usr/local (the default prefix) but want the binaries to go somewhere else,
you can use the --bindir option  For more info, call configure with --help
