Here are the rules I use to achive this:


MODULEDIR: modules

        @if ! test -d $(datadir); then rm -f $(datadir); mkdir $(datadir); fi 
        @if ! test -d $(pkgdatadir); then rm -f $(pkgdatadir); mkdir 
        @if ! test -d $(MODULEDIR); then rm -f $(MODULEDIR); mkdir 
        @list='$(MODULES)'; for p in $$list; do \
          if test -f $(pkglibdir)/$$p; then \
                ln -sf $(pkglibdir)/$$p $(MODULEDIR)/$$p; \
          fi; \

        @list='$(MODULES)'; for p in $$list; do \
          rm -f $(MODULEDIR)/$$p; \

pkglib_LTLIBRARIES = \

This will cause and to be installed/uninstalled into/from
