This is quite strange. When I take hello-2.6, configure it like you did,
and build it, I have the following definitions in src/Makefile:

prefix = /home/bruno/local
datarootdir = ${prefix}/share
datadir = ${datarootdir}
localedir = $(datadir)/locale

and src/hello.c passes the value of LOCALEDIR as second argument to

Where does your build tree of 'hello' differ?
