Well, uh... there *is* some sed magic done to those scripts. Almost half
of the those files in my
installation provide wrong prefix, wrong exec_prefix, and worst of all,
sometimes just
prefix and nothing else, not even includedir and libdir (but that's
another story, another patch).

Good, but im not doing that documentation patch. Like I said to Thomas,
I really suck in this
documentation department.

Nice, two Ok votes sofar.
Can the father (Gustavo) of this <pkg>_CONFIG_FIXUP  also give his vote ?
