 Hello, Kseitz.
  > I'm confused. Why can you not use --prefix and --exec-prefix?
 DESTDIR is used to install the another (temporary) place.
 It mainly used for build a binary package.
 Some tools embed prefix information in its source code,
 for example...GCC.
 I'm not sure if the embedding is done in tcl/ code, but
 it' possible the another package in
 So I hesitate using --prefix.
  > I've never even heard of the DESTDIR hack before.
 Please check diffs between GNU gettext 0.10.35 and 0.10.36.
 And also binutils
