(Hi Ralf - nice to meet you here again ;-) )

I want to have a configure-switch, so the packager can decide, where to 
install them. Something like:

./configure --pkgdir=/usr/lib/some/where/else

Default will be $libdir/$PACKAGE.

I have a library for databaseaccess in c++ with drivers for different 
databases (tntdb). My debian-maintainer would like to make the drivers 

One idea he had is to load "" instead of "", but I 
don't want to hardwire this .so-extension at all. I use libtool, which knows, 
which extension to use, so I only pass "drivername" to lt_dlopen. I have no 
chance to add a versionnumber after the extension.

Then we decided to put the drivers into /usr/lib/tntdb0. And that's what I'm 
trying to do: to let him decide, where to store the drivers.
