I'm not exactly sure what you are trying to do here.  If your intent
is to put sudo in /usr/local/sudo/bin, visudo in /usr/local/sudo/sbin
and the manpages under /usr/local/sudo/man you should run configure
with an argument like


That way "make install" ought to put things where you want.  As
Galen said though, you will need to add /usr/local/sudo/man to your
MANPATH environment variable (or adjust the config file for man if
there is one) so that the man command knows where to look.
