Configuration options

I have a question regarding configuration options specified in
http://gcc.gnu.org/install/configure.html

In the documentation it states:

--prefix=dirname
Specify the toplevel installation directory. This is the recommended way to
install the tools into a directory other than the default. The toplevel
installation directory defaults to /usr/local.

For this would I specify

prompt> ./configure prefix="/home/gnu"

for example.

It didn't seem to work, but came back with an error message like the following:

"Invalid configuration `prefix=/home/gnu': machine `prefix=prefix=/home/gnu' not
recognized"

Could somebody tell me whats wrong?

Thanks
Kabir
