--prefix does not affect where Python stuff goes.
GDAL ./configure tries to detect Python location using sys.prefix
property what is Python version dependent:
On x64 systems, PYLIB=lib64.
Here is the whole logic implemented:
If Python location can not be determined properly, then it falls back with:
