the way that DESTDIR is supposed to work is that it's normally empty
string, and the ordinary paths from prefix, etc get used. but if the
user sets DESTDIR during make install, DESTDIR gets added to the
beginning of all paths in order to install into a sandbox environment.
this is very useful for building binary packages, naturally.
