Aah, thanks! Indeed it installs in a directory of my choice.´
However, dependent module no longer find the include files. E.g.
clients/NT/rules.msc contains

   MONETDB_CFLAGS=-I$(TOPDIR)\..\..\MonetDB\NT\include ...

It works with

   MONETDB_CFLAGS=-I$(prefix)\include ...

but only if $(prefix) is not the default $(MAKEDIR).
AFAICS, we need a $(MONETDB_INSTALL_DIR) or something like that.
