I've had some problems with path definitions:
- Variable vm-configure-docdir and vm-configure-infodir are both empty
strings. Looks like their definition in lisp/Makefile.in is missing.
- The data files (NEWS etc.) are installed into etcdir, therefore
vm-configure-datadir should be set to etcdir too. (One could think
about renaming the lisp variable to vm-configure-etcdir. However, in
the patch below I've chosen not to do this.)
The patch included below addresses these path issues.
