yep, that makes sense.
it's well to discuss about it, since it's always good to bring
improvements to software.

if I remember correct, I tried submitting those DESTDIR fixes time ago,
also to pd-vanilla, but perhaps it found no interest.
let's put it into this way:

  why some files (everything under $prefix/lib it seems) need to get
installed outside $DESTDIR?

  actually almost no-one notices this problem when installing pd
directly to / (which is, when you specify no DESTDIR to make).
  but when you want to install files in some path (example: for
packaging pd), you end up having a DESTDIR which contains bin files, but
not library files, which get installed to the real root /) so the build
system it's not fully functional (it has to be regularly patched to
install correctly on Gentoo, as I said)

yep I followed the discussion and despite I'm really busy with life,
work and study, I'm really happy this is happening, and I wish to
contribute to pd ui (I have some idea for improved widgets and also for
the ui design)
