Hello Mike,

I was trying to avoid having to type the value of pkgdatadir when
calling make, because in a rebuild some object files could have been
compiled with different value if I mistakenly forget to set it

I like Ralf's idea about the enviroment variable. It stops me from
messing with the build system and makes possible to do a final `make
install' without having to rebuild.
