The patch doesn't really fix the bug.  It defines DESTDIR in the
makefile, something the GNU standards I linked to on opening the bug
explicitly rule out: "You should not set the value of DESTDIR in your
Makefile at all".

And there still isn't a variable called `prefix' that can be overridden
on the command line.

So the patch has implemented its own non-standard scheme which will just
cause confusion in the long run for packagers.  May as well get it right
now, if at all.
