Gentoo uses a "build root" in the same sense.  all packages are compiled and 
then installed into a temporary root before being merged to the actual file 
system.  we utilize DESTDIR very heavily.  i imagine the issue you're hitting 
would be easily reproducible by:
 - install an older version of the package in /
 - build up the latest version in ~/ and then do:
        $ make install DESTDIR=$PWD/foo
and then verify that everything in foo/ is linked against the right thing
