Never mind, I figured out how to do a clean solution to this. Here's the 
updated patch, which introduces a --install-prefix argument. I believe 
the only outstanding issues are checking whether the -dylib_file parts 
are necessary, and benchmarking to see if there is any performance 
degradation. If there isn't it might make sense to default to 
--enable-shared on Darwin. I'll post patches to attend to this, as well 
as support for Mach-O binaries, later.

BTW, I think I noticed a slight inconsistency in the generation of the 
pkg-config files: libdir is set to \${exec_prefix}/lib rather than the 
$libdir which might have been passed to configure.
