I have tried installing perl 5.24.0 on an old PPC machine, with the
configuration below, but it installed the perl binary and the scripts
in /bin, even though I specified a prefix of /usr.

I don’t know exactly which option is responsible for the bug, but I do
find it really strange.
I think it's caused by the hints on darwin, from hints/darwin.sh:

case "$prefix" in
...
'/usr') # We are building/replacing the built-in perl
  prefix='/';
  installprefix='/'; # used to set installbin
  bin='/usr/bin';
  siteprefix='/usr/local';
...

That said, replacing your system perl is probably dangerous (OS X 10.11 doesn't allow it AFAIK.)
