It turns out that Paolo inadvertently (?) fixed this issue by

That wasn't entirely inadvertent. It had been on my todo list to fix relocatability for good, I just didn't remember how it got on the list. :)

So on one hand I didn't remember it to be a regression, and I only really set out to make QEMU relocatable in order to enable the change of commit d17f305a26 ("configure: use a platform-neutral prefix", 2020-09-30). On the other hand, your report was what had made me aware that relocatable installs were buggy and inconsistent.
