I'm still convinced we should switch to this behaviour.
It will allow parallel installation of even MICRO releases,
as you could have:

You'll have standard switches to fine-tune paths:

	--bindir (loader/dumper)
	--datadir (lwpostgis.sql, lwpostgis_upgrade.sql, spatial_ref_sys.sql)
	--mandir (loader/dumper manual pages)
	--libdir (liblwgeom.so)

And non-standard (but common) switch for docs:

	--with-docdir (README.postgis, postgis.html)

What do you think ?
