cannot find nmap-os-fingerprints file

Dear nmap-developers,

I am using nmap for a long time (beginning with 2.54 or so) by compiling it
from source.
Since about Version 3.x I use the --prefix option to install the files in a
special directory.
(it is easier for me to built a package)

My OS is (Fedora 3):
Linux boxname.tld 2.6.9-1.667 #1 Tue Nov 2 14:41:25 EST 2004 i686 i686 i386
GNU/Linux

Using nmap Version 4.0 I did:
./configure --prefix=/tools/nmap --without-nmapfe
and
./configure --prefix=/tools/nmap --datadir=/tools/nmap --without-nmapfe

but in both cases I see

 # nmap -O 127.0.0.1
OS scan requested but I cannot find nmap-os-fingerprints file.  It should be
in /usr/local/share/nmap, ~/.nmap/ or .
QUITTING!

The file 
/tools/nmap/share/nmap/nmap-os-fingerprints
exists and is 644.

The Path is set to /tools/nmap/bin/

Please, can anybody give me a hint,
what did I wrong on my box?

Thank you very much.
Regards
Jens.
