I would have preferred ${prefix}/Applications and ${prefix}/Library/ 
That way it is just one location to keep track of, instead of three  
(or more)...
(Fink uses ${prefix} for Applications and Frameworks, if that is of  
any relevance)
But it varies a bit between ports, Python uses ${prefix} while SDL  
uses /Library.
