Why do you want to install via source builds? You can install ntop right away:

sudo apt-get install ntop

In the (unlikely) event that you do need to build from source, normally with configure scripts, you use:

./configure --prefix=/some/path/to/install/path

to specify the installation path.

it install old version of ntop.

Is it that important? Anyway, you've got two choices:

1) Wait until 13.04 comes out shortly, presumably with an updated ntop.

2) Try the configure command I gave above.
