You are right, $bindir is the directory is going to be installed in.
However strange, I do have a reason for wanting to use it in my

We have a set of related projects, they should all be installed in the
same locations. The executable I need AC_PATH_PROGRAM to find is
installed by one of the projects, and needed in building several of the
other projects. I thought it would be nice to not force the user to
modify $PATH before building by adding $bindir to the path that's
searched by AC_PATH_PROGRAM.

(no sources) with the worst of free software (no finishing touches). I
simply do not believe in the shareware market at all.
