I agree... I'm scratching my head here. The ".*" is particularily worrying.
Doesn't that mean it will replace all the installation lines by nothing in the 

Does that install anything still? :)

So now I've downloaded the source tarball and checked.

By extreme obscurity :), this only matches the "install -d" lines which are
creating empty directories (empty because of the configure-flags).

DESTDIR is for installing into a tempdir.  After that is done the system
is supposed to "mv $tempdir /" and the software is usually written *not*
to expect DESTDIR to be still here when it runs.  PREFIX is something
else and probably what you had in mind.
