But if you look at it from another platform's (I mean different than 
Linux) view it would be better to do as it suppose to be better for all.
So my suggestion is to set prefix to @prefix@ and exec_prefix to 
${prefix} and if there is more vars which set to something like 
${pcfiledir} they also must be changed accordingly.
