Makefile: add PREFIX variable

We use a Makefile which in turn uses cmake. If we wanted to set the install

That's long and hard to remember. Following the conventions of other Makefiles,
this now works as well and is equivalent:

  make PREFIX=/tmp/nvim

# Individual entries must be uncommented to take effect.
