Could you provide more information in the commit message about what use
case requires pulseaudio to be relocatable?

The existing convention for environment variable names is to use
"PULSE_" as the prefix, and I think this patch should use the same

I think it would be better to add an environment variable for the data
directory (/usr/share/pulseaudio). If and when we install more things
to the data directory in the future, we would have to create more
environment variables just to keep the relocation support working if
each thing in the data directory needs a separate environment variable.
