Another method is to use a macro (available at the macro archive) to
expand $prefix or whatever at configure time into a separate variable
which you AC_SUBST, and then just go ahead and use AC_OUTPUT.

In some ways this isn't as friendly.

Automake itself takes the cheapo hack route:

  my $prefix = "@prefix@";
  my $perllibdir = $ENV{'perllibdir'} || "@datadir@/@PACKAGE@";

This is ugly, but it has worked for years.
