site-config: Site Paths Configuration for autoconf Based configure Scripts
==========================================================================

Site configuration for autoconf based configure scripts provides smart
defaults for paths that are not specified.

All autoconf based configure scripts will automatically resource site
script using CONFIG_SITE environment variable. It works without any
explicit user interaction.

Currently implemented features:


Automatic libdir setup to $exec_prefix/lib or $exec_prefix/lib64
----------------------------------------------------------------

Depending on architecture, site script should correctly and
automatically switch between lib and lib64 libdir.


libexecdir setup to $exec_prefix/lib
------------------------------------

Upstream libexecdir defaults to $exec_prefix/libexec. This directory is
not part of FHS 2.2, so we change it to $exec_prefix/lib (yes, it is
correct to set it to $exec_prefix/lib even for bi-arch platforms). Most
projects add package name to this path, so you most probably get what
FHS 2.2 expects.
