The libtool distributed with GLib and GTK+ includes a patch 
necessary for correct installation in a different directory
than  the configured directory. If you use stock libtool
you will either get failure on installation, or worse,
a mislinked install.

However, the patch does require a "strict" setup ... if you
configure with --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc, then 
installing into:

 libdir = /foo/usr/lib
 sysconfdir = /foo/etc

Will work.

 libdir = /foo/lib
 sysconfdir = /foo/etc

Won't. This is probably the limitation you are complaining
