Why in the world would you want that?  (Honest question!)

Wouldn't it be enough if you used $(libdir), and told your users
that if they want to shoot themselves mildly in the foot, they could
still use
  ./configure --bindir=/some/where/bin --libdir=/some/where/bin/lib

I mean, this convention goes against all I've ever seen on a *nix
system.  If instead you are out to get things working on w32 systems,
then be encouraged to use Libtool, read about -no-undefined, and don't
mess with libdir at all.

Slightly confused,
