--infodir's default handling; standard CC, CPP, CFLAGS, LDFLAGS, LIBS,
CPPFLAGS from environment vs a myriad of --with-* options for them
(practically the whole "Compilation options" section); --localstatedir
vs --with-statedir; --docdir vs --with-docdir; --sysconfdir vs --with-etcdir
(maybe not the same thing, dunno, what "etcdir" means is not documented).
