Assume that most users only have the files installed that "make install"
copied. Thus, you need to install the bitmap to an appropriate
directory, e.g. pkgdatadir:
pkgdatadir = $(datadir)/$(PACKAGE)
pkgdata_DATA = stargate.bmp
Your program should use the full path to refer to this file. A common
way to do that is to create a preprocessor macro containing the path:
DEFINES = -Dpkgdatadir=\"$(pkgdatadir)\"
This cannot be moved to config.h, because these variables are designed
to be overridden in the Makefile.
In addition, your package should handle the missing file gracefully.
