That does seem a funny way to do things to me, and it obviously ignores
$docdir. You might want to discuss this upstream; the autoconf-2.63
documentation defines those two variables as:
-- Variable: datadir
The directory for installing idiosyncratic read-only
-- Variable: docdir
The directory for installing documentation files (other than Info
so you want to allow for the possibility that the user will have changed one
or the other on the configure command-line.
