I personally use a different prefix for development and installation without root privileges - but I could of course use an extra option for that.

In general, I don't think overriding localstatedir in audit-viewer is worth it.  It violates user's expectations about ./configure behavior, and autoconf doesn't offer a clean way to override it anyway.  After all, most users should (eventually) rely on their distribution to package audit-viewer for them.
