It should be installing where everything else is going (~/gtk/inst unless you changed it in .jhbuildrc-custom). I just did a check-build of zlib and it installed in the right place, so I'm at a bit of a loss about how it configured wrong.

The first time, after I had gotten that error, I dropped into shell and ran `configure`, then `make`, then `make install`—and then I got the 'Permission denied' error. Is it installing the wrong place because I ran the configure script without the right prefix flags? If so, how do I add the right ones?

Yes. Say
./configure --prefix=$PREFIX

There are very few "non-dependency" errors. I try not to have anything in the build chains that doesn't need to be there for *some* reason. Having said that, I should remove WebKit…
