Well, that's another solution.  But I don't like the fact that you
then have to run autoconf on any pkg that uses GNU configure.  Of course,
someone could go and test if we get any backlash from autoconf version

To me, TRT seems to be to install the file in question into LOCALBASE.
But that has it's own drawback, IIRC.

Uhm, we *already* allow the installation of X11 packages outside X11BASE.
Lots of packages do that.
