Yes, that is the problem. Change line 331 to:
  bitmapdir = $(datadir)/games/xboard

POSIXes may differ in such details - hard to know which is right.

Also, FYI, Stockfish 2.0.1 <http://www.stockfishchess.com/>, which is GPLed, 
runs fine with Polyglot. I had to run its library through Xboard, though. It 
library follows the polyglot standard, but nearly always plays Sicilian on 
e2-e4. Fruit 2.3.1 also works.

Rybka232a with microwine-0.9 and IPPOLIT did not work, for some reason, but 
Stockfish is stronger.
