  I still have no idea what you are talking about.

  * What --libdir option did you give to ./configure ?
  * What did you expect to get ?
  * What did you actually get ?

  If what happens goes against reasonable expectations, I am willing to
modify the build. But so far I'm not seeing the problem you claim to
have. I'm using --libdir and configure is installing the static libraries
in the exact location I'm telling it to.
  Please give a precise, detailed bug-report before anything else. Throwing
patches at me and getting butthurt when I refuse to apply them blindly is
not going to accomplish anything.
