I see the problem, but I don't understand how this could happen!

The build fails at share/Makefile.am:
        $(XDG_ICON_RESOURCE) install --context mimetypes --size 32      \
                $(srcdir)/pixmaps/dfarc.png $(mimetype)
But apparently your $(XDG_ICON_RESOURCE) is empty, and so the build
tries to run 'install', the first argument :)

However, the presence of XDG_ICON_RESOURCE is checked in configure.ac,
and if it's missing, 'HAVE_XDG' is not defined, and the build installs
the icon differently.

So, to fix your problem for a source package, you probably just need
to depend on "xdg-utils". But I still wonder how you get this error %)

Note: if this is not a source package, but a binary package, then
things get complicated because the .desktop file need to be installed
and registered in a post-install script.  I don't know if this is the
case here.

The default location for source installs in 'autoconf' is /usr/local,
so I just reproduced that behavior.  But for packages, you can specify

        make install PREFIX=/usr

For binary packages I also supported DESTDIR to install in a temporary
directory instead of '/'.

Cool, I'll see if I manage to create a branch for DFArc, so I can
release v3.2.1 with your translation now, without waiting for v3.4 :)
