yum install subversion

Scripts like the above has no control of where software will be installed.

How can I specify the installation path like --prefix when installing from source?

What are you trying to do? In general you can't alter where individual packages dump their files.

You can make yum install/update a different root directory by using --installroot, which is useful for working with e.g. chroot environments.

Probably trying to mimic the rpm --prefix option. –  Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams May 22 '10 at 23:39
