Maybe you can make the first version of $(prefix [package]) function in
that case.  It should return the prefix that was used when installing
package, or when no package given, the default prefix, so it can be used
also in --with-xxxxx=$(prefix xxxxxx)/usr/bin/xxxxxx or something.

There has been some discussions on this issue on this list before.  Not
sure if I reword the idea correctly.
