If you install things with --prefix=/usr it will mess with your system. You
are, in fact, asking for it. 

I have had only much stranger and rarer (yet fixable) preprocessor/linker
issues when I've installed the package under a reasonably private path like
/usr/heimdal. Besides, $PATH can be long nowadays; bash is forgiving. 

If you really want /usr/bin, do this: 

./configure --prefix=/usr --includedir=/usr/include/heimdal \
	--oldincludedir=/usr/lib/heimdal && make && sudo make install

heimdal-config will then help you when you configure and compile software
that needs heimdal.
