Description Rich Megginson 2006-11-14 23:08:10 EST
Instead of hard-coding LIBDIR, BINDIR et. al. in create_instance.h, these should
be defined during make.  We can't define them during configure (with AC_DEFINE)
because the values of libdir, bindir, et. al. depend on $prefix and $exec_prefix
which may be set at make time.

Branch: HEAD
Fix Description: The paths LIBDIR, BINDIR, et. al. are #define'd in
create_instance.h to hard coded values.  We should be able to set these values
in configure and override the built in values.	We can't simply set them via
AC_DEFINE in configure.ac because we are using config.h and this would render
the definition like this:
#define BINDIR "${exec_prefix}/bin"
instead of
#define BINDIR "/usr/bin"
So we instead define them in Makefile.am and add their definitions to
AM_CPPFLAGS, and quote them properly to make sure the value includes the
quotation marks when expanded in the C code.  I tested this with both an
rpmbuild and a regular developer type build.
Platforms tested: RHEL4/FC5
