Re: $(datarootdir) should be $(datadir)

    In section 7.2.5, when the 'datadir' directory is discussed, this
    sentence appears:

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

    $(datarootdir) should be $(datadir), given the section it's in.

Thanks for the report.  I think you are right, although given the
always-confusing situation datadir and datarootdir, I can't say I'm 100%
sure.  Can anyone else here confirm/deny?

I'll think about it and either make the change or insert an explanation.
