[bug-gsrc] Problems with --prefix/--exec-prefix settings combination

User-agent: Gnus/5.13 (Gnus v5.13) Emacs/23.3 (gnu/linux)

I usually install GNU software using a combination of --prefix and
--exec-prefix settings. Installing from different machines to a shared
NFS directory. This allows sharing system independent files such as
emacs lisp extensions between the different installs.

Now with gsrc I run into some problems with this approach:

 * build bazaar tries to build the zlib dependency. But here I get the
   error Message:

    cd work/zlib-1.2.5 &&  ./configure '--prefix=/usr/local/gltools/gnu' 
    unknown option: --exec-prefix=/usr/local/gltools/gnu/arch_a

 * for i.e. make the installation puts its files
   /usr/local/gltools/gnu/packages/make-3.81/arch_a/ and
   /usr/local/gltools/gnu/packages/make-3.81/share/, but installing from
   a second architecture deletes the whole
   /usr/local/gltools/gnu/packages/make-3.81 tree.

 * deletion of the whole packages tree for a project would also delete
   any customization in the share tree while installing for arch_b (like
   in share/emacs/23.3/site-lisp/ or share/emacs/site-lisp/).
