I see, but I fail to find a place in GCS that requires that make
prefix=anotherprefix should redefine prefix for make all. All I could
find is that prefix should be redefinable for installers, which makes
sense, and which works perfectly with paths hard-coded in config.h. So
why just not include AC_DEFINE_DIR in autoconf?
