I think if we can keep GNU_PROGRAM_PREFIX, it would be better. This is
one of the programs that duplicates functionality in the base system of
most BSDs, so if we can allow for easy disambiguation of the basenames,
let's do it.
Two other alternatives: I install manually with post-install target or I
patch the Makefile.in and configure* to add --program-prefix support.
I think it's simplest to patch the Makefile.in. The configure script
supports --program-prefix and --transform-sed by default, so you should
only need to fix up the Makefile.in file.
