On Windows Platform (on which I build and test), all executables are put
in the same folder.
If --prefix=D:/GNU/emacs
All executables and fns-VERSION.el files are in "D:/GNU/emacs/bin"

The following is the dir contents:

[dky]ls D:/GNU/emacs/bin
addpm.exe         ddeclient.exe     etags.exe         movemail.exe
cmdproxy.exe      ebrowse.exe       fns-  runemacs.exe
ctags.exe         emacs.exe         hexl.exe

Since "invocation-directory" holds the correct value computed correctly
based on the argv[0] (src/emacs.c) of the Emacs process and not the
environmental variable as done for "exec-directory", IMHO, we should
consider using it.
