I'm not sure I really understand how PREFIX is supposed to work.

In a normal package PREFIX would be set to /usr, /usr/local, /opt, or
whatever, by the person doing the installation.

The code in StdGNU.mk seems to be capable of generating paths like
which is a bit mad.

Also PREFIX is set in StdGNU.mk.  Why is it also set in Tools.mk ?
