Re: @docdir@ and others unimplemented in (autoconf) 2.59

Hi Chris,

    This should normally be /usr/local/share, but write it as 
    $(datarootdir). (If you are using Autoconf, write it as address@hidden@’.)

I believe that discrepancy is intentional.  The idea really is to use
$(datarootdir), the previous variable in the list.

(I remember there being a long, painful, and ultimately useless
discussion about this.)

For projects using automake/autoconf, it makes no difference anyway.
