Patch for GNU prolog build system: DESTDIR support

From: Claudio Fontana
Subject: Patch for GNU prolog build system: DESTDIR support

I am currently checking all GNU packages to help them
provide better build systems,
and I'd have a simple patch to add DESTDIR support to 
GNU prolog.

After the patch it will be possible to get a snapshot
of the installation at make install time, using for

make install DESTDIR=/tmp/staging-area

This is useful to prepare binary packages and for
source package managers to extract information easily 
from the installation, prior to moving the
installation to its final placement.

DESTDIR variable is referenced by the GNU coding

Other references are in the GNU make, and GNU automake

The attached patch is a p0 unified diff, which in fact
only changes src/Makefile.in .
The patched version is gprolog-1.2.16 (the latest
version as far as I know).

Please tell me if a ChangeLog entry is needed,
and what you think about this patch.
