Generally it shouldn't be.
While it is *not exactly impossible* to adjust installation locations
of directories and libraries based on whatever crazy idea the main
developer comes up with***, no sane setup should change installation
directories based on whether the git binary comes from /usr/bin/git or
*** the author of makefile is of course free to use rules like "if
folder '/opt/local' exists, then run 'rm -rf /'".
