Thanks a ton!

But is pkglocalstatedir predefined, like pkgdatadir, pkglibdir, and
pkgincludedir? It doesn't seem like it.  If I just do the above, I
wind up with LOCALSTATEDIR being '/'.

Am I first supposed to do something like:
pkglocalstatedir = $(localstatedir)/@PACKAGE@

If I do, that seems to work as intended.

Regarding the GNU Coding Standards vs. FHS discrepancy in where the
files wind up getting installed, am I safe to assume that as the
"upstream guy" I can just follow the Autotools defaults? The distro
packagers ought to know to use "./configure --localstatedir=/var" to
get these files into the FHS-approved place, right?
