There was a patch for this problem posted on this mailing list about two 
months ago by Bruno Haible. It seems to work really well and, from what I can 
tell, seems safe for platforms not supporting DESTDIR. This would really help 
fix packaging problems for many projects (at least on some platforms).

I have attached the (modified) patch for libtool 1.4.2. You can find the 
original patch by Bruno Haible in the archive of this mailing list. It would 
be nice if this would finally be fixed. :)

Thank you.
