Let's slow down a little.  I don't see that anything got simpler, particularly
when we also deal with Manfred's problem.

We have two problems with the unlibsubdir code, and I think they both can be
fixed by having configure substitute in a suitable value for unlibsubdir
instead of blindly using ../../..

See my message to Manfred from last night.
