$prefix and $DESTDIR should not be mixed. $prefix gets compiled into
binaries and you don't want to accidently have $DESTDIR in there as
well. Also I find it very annoying if packages use $DESTDIR
differently than automake.

The additional define of $libdir is useful for biarch platforms like
x86_64 as libraries have to be installed into /lib64 instead of /lib
there.
