Yes.  I vote against the patch.  I'll try to finish tomorrow a patch 
that will allow you to simply turn off the datarootdir related checks.

Rationale: the check is a heuristic, thus broken By Design[1].
Just because it works in your case, doesn't mean that Autoconf
developers would like to receive the next bug report about the
next user case in another week.


[1] Quoting Bruno, who not only coined this IIRC, but also suggested
    to use this heuristic.  ;-)
