The canonical way of packaging for system install is to use PREFIX=/usr
and then do

make DESTDIR=/some/staging/directory install

to install into some empty hierarchy that you can then build the install
packages from.  There usually is some option to add, modify or (re)move
files in the staging area after that installation is done and before the
actual packaging, but it's really annoying if you have to use that.
