I think the problem here is that "--prefer-pkgsrc" is not a valid
argument by itself, it should be "--prefer-pkgsrc yes" or similar.

The getopt parsing is a little fragile and is simply shifting over
your "--prefix" argument, and then ignoring an unknown "/usr/local"
argument, thus you're getting the default, and no helpful warning.

We should definitely make it more robust.
