One excuse and one reason:

* I'm not confident that DESTDIR will work correctly for DJGPP. You can just
concatenate two DOS paths, e.g.: concatenating c:/foo and c:/djgpp/bin doesn't
make sense. DJGPP does support using /dev/<letter> instead of <letter>:, so
this can be avoided. Testing with automake 1.7.[23] recently indicates that
DESTDIR should work OK. So perhaps I should have more confidence in DESTDIR.

* As mentioned already, some projects use autoconf but not automake. Several
projects I've packaged for DJGPP only use autoconf.
