Subject[PATCH] perf: install into /usr/local by default.
It was confusing to install into $(HOME)/bin, especially since there was
no documentation mentioning where perf gets installed by default.
So install to /usr/local by default, as other programs do, and allow users to
override the install location by specifying the prefix explicitly.
