Just a tip -- only the "make install" step has to be run as root, and
that only if you're going to install into a system directory.
On Ubuntu, you don't even have to be root: it sets up sudo for you, so
you can just say "sudo make install" instead for the last step, from
the system owner's account.

What lead you to believe it would?
Are you asking how to make it so? Say "./configure --help", and look
at the --prefix option.

Read your compiler's documentation, particularly the bit about the -I
And anticipating your next question: read your linker's documentation,
particularly the bit about the -L flag.
