As I pointed out in my message *and* on irc where we were just having
this discussion, there is no way to let --prefix override the layout
with autoconf in a way that is guaranteed to work across versions
of autoconf, at least as far as I can see. If you can come up with
a way to let that happen, I'd be happy to hear it, but in the mean
time I don't think it's crutial to getting --enable-layout working*.

* yes, we have this working now. Patch forthcoming.
