Thank you, understood. But, when I copy samples from automake manual
and do the following:

    mkdir -p $(DESTDIR)/var/run

and I expect that var/run will be created under my $PREFIX.  The
result is not, the var/run was created under my current working
directory.  See the following 'make install' outputs:

make[3]: Entering directory `/home/woody/lmt/trunk'
mkdir -p var/run

Here, /home/woody/lmt/trunk is my working directory, not my $PREFIX.

Did I missed something?  Thanks.
