Depends on how indirect your definition of datadir is.  If it's relative
to a non-expanded prefix, it breaks.  If it's relative to a non-expanded
prefix and you're using autoconf 2.60 and an old version of
AC_DEFINE_DIR, it also breaks.

AC_SUBST might expand enough to generally suit you for the common case,
I'm not sure.  But we've had to deal with this all through X, first in
the server and subsequently in the libraries.
