Ok, so what is the --prefix arg to use?  It's just a different base
directory.  My quibble is that the structure underneath the --prefix appears
to be different between Aquamacs and what VM wants to use.

The VM install directions specifically warns not to do this.  Bytecode
formats change.  While it might be safe today, there is no guarantee that
the bytecode format for /usr/bin/emacs and Aquamacs will always remain
