# Definition of installation directories, we don't use half of these, but since
# the configure script has them on offer while passing through, we might as well
# set them. Note that we have to be careful, because the GNU coding standards
# have changed a bit over the course of time, and autoconf development reflects
# this.
#
# A little bit of history regarding autoconf and GNU coding standards, use this
# as a cheat-sheet for the stuff below:
#
# variable | default < 2.60 | default >= 2.60
# ------------+--------------------+--------------------------------------
# exec_prefix | ${prefix} | ${prefix}
# libdir | ${exec_prefix}/lib | ${exec_prefix}/lib
# datarootdir | NONE! | ${prefix}/share
# datadir | ${prefix}/share | ${datarootdir}
# infodir | ${prefix}/info | ${datarootdir}/info
# mandir | ${prefix}/man | ${datarootdir}/man
# docdir | NONE! | ${datarootdir}/doc/${PACKAGE_TARNAME}
# htmldir | NONE! | ${docdir}
# dvidir | NONE! | ${docdir}
# pdfdir | NONE! | ${docdir}
# psdir | NONE! | ${docdir}
#
# NOTE: The default e.g. ${docdir} above means that autoconf substitutes the
# string "${docdir}", not the value of docdir! This is crucial for the GNU
# coding standards.
