Not so sure I like this idea. I want my /usr tree to be totally
controlled by my distribution (Debian), and when giving 
--prefix=/usr/local I expect everything to go there..

Couldn't aclocal always also look in /usr/local/share/aclocal ?
Won't help those who install glib/gtk+ in like /opt/gnome...
But at least they could make symlinks to ther /usr/local... instead
of having to touch the sacred /usr. :)
