 Toolchain's "om-conf" defines all output directories for ./configure, e.g.
 --bindir and such things. It points all those to the Om Linux root
 filesystem or /usr of it.

 This is not optimal for simple tests, or basic development tasks, because
 that will copy a lot of test files to the phone's / root. I don't want
 non-finished programs going there.

 Extra problem that I cannot run "make install" on the host OS, because
 that would copy the ARM programs to my x86_64 host OS's / or /usr

 Expected behavior:

 om-conf --prefix=/media/card/prog

 and then I could

 host$ make
 host$ sudo mkdir /media/card
 host$ chown myuser:mygroup /media/card
 host$ make install
 host$ tar -czvf myprogram.tar.gz /media/card/prog
 host$ scp
 host$ ssh
 om$ cd /media/card
 om$ tar -xzvf myprogram.tar.gz
 om$ prog/bin/myprogram

 Easy testing of programs on the phone, without populating development
 files to "/" in porting tests.
