No it is not. Not on any debians I've tried at least. They do have
--prefix /usr and --sysconfdir /etc in their standard debian package
build rules of course, but that's hardly the same thing...

Besides, it depends on the system (autotools) the configure script has
been generated with, which is not neccessarily the same as the build
system ;)
