I tried to use two configure commands (none of them worked) i.e.

/src/sid/src/configure --prefix=/opt/sid 2>&1 | tee configure.out

/src/sid/src/configure --prefix=/opt/sid --exec-prefix=/opt/sid 2>&1 |
tee configure.out

The folder /opt/sid/share/sidcomp has been correctly created by build
install and the sid-control-tksm.tk etc is present there.

Actually, as the strace output is showing, the code isn't trying to find
the folder /opt/sid/share/sidcomp, it is looking for a folder
called /opt/sid/../share/sidcomp.  Isn't it strange (I mean the '..' in
the path)?
