When I download and run an rpm, it installs the program in a particular place 
where the rpm's author knows it should be.

When I download a tarred program, untar it and run make, sometimes it stays 
right where the untarred directory is and other times it knows where it 
should be and installs there.  How does one decide where to put the untarred 
program before running make ./configure and install?  Or does it matter?
