autoconf/automake doesn't make this type of setup easy. Maybe you could do something like:

make pkglibexecdir=/usr/local/lib

Or can you give an example of some other program using automake where this works better? Maybe there is a way to do it, and I'm just doing something wrong. Although most programs aren't normally creating subdirs..
