Just take a look at It says:

: prefix = @prefix@

and a bit later
: # Directory in which to install library files belonging to the extension.
: TNM_INSTALL_DIR = $(prefix)/lib/tnm$(TNM_VERSION)

So the TNM_INSTALL_DIR depends on the prefix which itself is
determined during your configure run. If you type ./configure --help,
you will see among other things the switches to set the prefix (which
of course overwrites any determined settings). There is also a hint to
"./configure -help" in step (b) of the README in the unix directory.
This is all standard GNU configure behaviour. There is absolutely no
magic here and things usually work out of the box.
