Question for people more knowledgeable about depends: in depends/README.md, it says that the way to use the results of calling `make` in depends for bitcoin is to do ./configure --prefix=`pwd`/depends/x86_64-w64-mingw32, but in our gitian descriptor we seem to use it like so: CONFIG_SITE=`pwd`/depends/x86_64-w64-mingw32/share/config.site ./configure --prefix=/. Is there a difference between the two?
Also why `--prefix=/`? Seems very odd to me

i know specifying --prefix lets bitcoin autoconf find the "config.site" file generated by depends
i didn't know about the CONFIG_SITE variable. it's probably not 100% identical but it seems more direct to use that if it works
