I'm working on Planet CCRMA (Fedora) packages based on Jarod Wilson's
spec file. There is something missing from rc1 which is a way to easily
install in a destination directory that is not PREFIX. The package build
environment does not have write access to, say, /usr, and installs in a
"buildroot", for example /var/tmp/faado/ (and inside that you have usr/,
etc, etc). 

Usually programs include something like DESTDIR= to set that directory
so that the install can be "redirected" without compromising all the
internal paths and references which should still point to PREFIX.
