Dear Ted,

Add DESTDIR to install and uninstall targets
to support staged installations.

I've added DESTDIR to the Makefile.  The manual page can be munged by this,
but honestly it's reasonably likely to be screwed up anyway.  The --help
and --version information will be correct and the man page points there
for authoritative information on installation location.

I can not comment on that skrewing up specifically, since DESTDIR changes
are not in pre3.

But DESTDIR is usually set only for make install.
Thus after make install with DESTDIR set paths in mans are expected to be broken, they are as if DESTDIR was not set (as was the case during
configuration and build stages).

Installation with DESTDIR set is not to be actually used,
but just archived for future use or analyzed in some way
(for example - to make list of files that are created
by make install - sort of automatic pkg-plist creation).

    SIncerely, Michail
