Substituting variables in installed scripts

I have what seems to be a simple question, I want to perform a configuration-dependent substitution in an installed script. What is the autoconf way?

For example, suppose I have a perl script,, with

use lib "../lib";

This works nicely during development, but on installation I want to change it to

use lib "@libdir@/@PACKAGE@";

for example

use lib "/usr/local/lib/myprog/";

Making a file and having configure process it seems unattractive and doesn't allow me to easily test during development. Patching during 'make install' seems better, but I don't know the autoconf way.

Any tips?
