why not etc/ in my /usr/local/nagios?

I'm trying to install nagios on my linux Fedora Core.
Here are the steps:

tar xfvz nagios-2.9.tar.gz
adduser nagios
mkdir /usr/local/nagios
chown nagios.nagios /usr/local/nagios

/usr/sbin/groupadd nagcmd

/usr/sbin/usermod -G nagcmd apache
/usr/sbin/usermod -G nagcmd nagios

./configure --prefix=/usr/local/nagios --with-cgiurl=/nagios/cgi-bin --with-htmurl= /nagios/ --with-nagios-user=nagios --with-nagios-group=nagios --with-command-group=nagcmd

make all
make install
make install-init
cd /usr/local/nagios

Everything looks good, but when I'm in /usr/local/nagios, I only have bin, sbin, share and var dirs, and I don't have etc subdirectory. Where went wrong in my installation?
