In fact, I think automake has a minor bug. lists the
following directories:

my %standard_prefix =
    map { $_ => 1 } (qw(bin data dataroot dvi exec html include info
                        lib libexec lisp localstate man man1 man2 man3
                        man4 man5 man6 man7 man8 man9 oldinclude pdf
                        pkgdatadir pkgincludedir pkglibdir pkglibexecdir
                        ps sbin sharedstate sysconf));

That list is missing 'doc' and 'locale'.
