I never used it. When I want to configure my MonetDB I do something like 

env PATH=/ufs/goncalve/scratch/MonetDB/buildtools/bin:${PATH} 
--prefix=/ufs/goncalve/scratch/MonetDB/MonetDB --enable-debug 

And I am able to install wherever I want my MonetDB, I just need to 
change the prefix.

I hope it was useful. At least for me it is ;)
