Well that is why I proposed AUCTEX_PATH_PREFIX gets two explicit arguments to tell it just which variables to set. So that one does not need to keep setting and resetting $prefix.

Well, with the current EMACS_EXAMINE_INSTALLATION_DIR that is what
you'll need to do. And if we're going to rewrite that, there is no need

Well, at least we have found that the Emacs-version specific
site-lisp directory typically appears before the Emacs-version
neutral site-lisp directory (which makes sense).

Very good.

Not everybody loves the package system. For those that want to, --without-packagedir is an option.

Yes. But then they'll get lispdir=no/lisp which may be funny, but
not very useful. The lispdir checking will not be done anyway, so
they'll need to specify --with-lispdir=/foo.

Sure about that?  If this is so, it might be called a bug.


It is not *that* much more work to say --with-packagelispdir='${lispdir}/foo/bar' The _vital_ bit is that
we allow setting it in the first place.

Sigh.  The difference is what happens in auto.el.  Relative paths are
coded completely different from absolute paths there.

auto.el? ..reading... And lisppackagelispdir is nowhere to be found in
either nor aclocal.m4...reading... Oh, AC_LISPIFY_DIR
(shudder) are you really serious on using this? It must be a nightmare
to debug.

OK. So relative paths are expanded relative to(...) yes, right: the
location of preview-latex.el ($lispdir according to Makefile), rather
than the directory configure thinks it will be installed into (which is
$lispdir). Hmm, are we talking about relocatable packages here?
