According to Reuben Thomas on 2/23/2009 7:34 AM:
In the node "Installation Directory Variables" the following makefile
fragment is given as an example:

     edit = sed \
             -e 's|@address@hidden|$(pkgdatadir)|g' \
             -e 's|@address@hidden|$(prefix)|g'

Thanks for spotting this.  It looks like the example has confusing datadir
with pkgdatadir since Jul 2000, even before GNU Coding Standards added
pkgdatadir as a mandatory variable.  I'll work on a patch to make it

But it's not wrong, in the sense that it does reflect the actual code in autoconf!
