After running ./configure with various path switches,
the incorrect path parsing results in install failure
(with no error reported to STD_ OUT)

Looks like the path supplied as option to ./configure
is somehow mangled?

For example:

s%@aucgrlodir@%/var/www//var/www/html/auc/g/login%g

/usr/src/config.status reports:

#! /bin/sh
# Generated automatically by configure.
# Run this file to recreate the current configuration.
# This directory was configured as follows,
# on host proxy.intranet:
#
# ./configure --with-included-gettext
--with-aucexecdir=/var/www/cgi-bin/auc
--with-aucdatadir=/var/www/auc
--with-aucgrdir=/var/www/html/auc/g
--with-aucnewsdir=/var/www/html/auc/newspaper
--with-aucvardir=/var/auc

# Compiler output produced by configure, useful for
debugging
# configure, is in ./config.log if it exists.

    The format of the ./configure options changed with version
    0.7.3. Read ./configure --help.
