Makefile.am is hopefully included only for reference. Unless you
really need to regen Makefile.in, you may be able to just patch it so
localedir=$(prefix)/share/locale, as is done in devel/maketool and
x11/gtk. If you must run auto[re]conf, then you must patch
Makefile.am, but sometimes trying to regen configure et. al.
introduces additional problems.
Not sure what's really wrong with configure and $(datadir).
