Thanks for the workaround. What I'm trying to find is a standard
variable that designates "directory in which to install
architecture-independent executables." Your method seems to require me
to define a new variable, so, fine, I can do that, and define it as
${prefix}/bin, but that's just another thing to maintain. I was trying
to find out if this functionality was built in already; I guess you're
saying it's not? Does this count as an omission, given that many
packages will want to install architecture-independent executables?
