Sadly that doesn't work because the autoconf expansions still include
variables for make. Eg, @bindir@ expands to ${exec_prefix}/bin. I think
that is needed so that you can use DESTDIR to change the prefix without
rerunning configure. This trick of doing it with sed is recommended in
the autoconf manual: http://is.gd/YivZyl (near the bottom).

Yes, that would be nice. I didn't discover that until yesterday! Perhaps
that would make more sense as a separate patch.
