The old behaviour was not sufficiently, heh, configurable for
some people. The defaults are mostly sane, though configure
always defaults to /usr/local for --prefix which is not what
we want for that default ever anyway...
Real default is "just type make" and in that case, everything
should end up where 98%+ of people would expect. Having said
that, would be nice to find a better solution for that dopey
--libexecdir use, I just need to think of something better.
