$(prefix)/share/applications is a directory containing .desktop files
( specification) under Linux. You don't want to install
anything else than .desktop files there. Are you looking for
$(prefix)/share/contacts or $(pkgdatadir) (if you want to install
architecture-independent package-specific data, which I guess you want)
or $(prefix)/share/icons (which is a themes-directory)?

A simple approach is:

contactsdatadir = ${pkgdatadir}/themes
contactsdata_DATA = themes/*.*

if that directory does not contain any sub-directories. An alternative
and IMO the only way to recursively copy a whole directory (_without_
using Makefiles for every sub-directory) with sub-dirs is to write your
own small piece of code and put it into the install-data-local target in
your Note, that your code should respect e.g. the DESTDIR
variable. AFAIK there is no macro for recursively copying a directory
(or I never found it :)).
