I don't think Cygnus configure needs to know anything about DESTDIR.
Instead I think it is a matter of changing every Makefile.in (except
those generated by automake) to respect it.

What is the problem here? I'm curious because if there is some
conflict I want to make sure that automake does the right thing.
Note that most GNU-style Makefiles work if you run configure with a
given --prefix and then change it at `make install' time:
make install prefix=/destdir/whatever
This was common practice in GNU for a long time (this method is also
supported by automake). I don't recall if it is in the GNU coding
standards (many things like this are not). I also don't know if this
is supported by the gcc Makefiles.
