Have you looked at your config.log to figure out if this is being set
correctly? You should see a #define DBUS_SYSTEM_SOCKET somewhere in
there. I just did a fresh compile with that option and
running ./dbus-monitor --system in the tools folder gives me this error:
Failed to open connection to system message bus: Failed to connect to
socket /tmp/.dbus.socket: No such file or directory
So it is working.

If you are installing to there why hasn't the config files been

That is because that is what prefix does. It prefixes all the
directories with that value. What exactly are you trying to do? If you
are trying to run D-Bus in place without installing it somewhere you
need to send the daemon some switches to tell it where to find its
configuration files and it is not recommended unless you know what you
are doing because you can run into issues that you would not normally
see due to misconfiguration.
