Thanks, Tyler. That fixed it.

Once again I was beaten by DESTDIR...

It seems that this variable is only set when running distcheck and not when
running install? am I right?

The purpose of DESTDIR is to allow people (e.g. package maintainers) to install to a different location than the default so the files can be bundled for installation. That is why 'make distcheck' verifies that this functionality is working.
