Frank, this addresses your configure --prefix=... request.  Also the
changes necessary to install and run a non-default (non-root)
installation (see the new last section of the INSTALL file for notes on
how to do this).

If $PCP_DIR is set in the environment, then we assume we're running a
non-default install.

Nathan, I'd appreciate a review of the pmapi.h and libpcp changes ...
these are for an unrelated matter where I've chosen to rollback some of
the unsigned changes for the event records data structures (ea_nrecords
and er_nparams) which were causing QA failures.

    Non-default install ... final fixups
    
    This batch of changes completes the configure --prefix=... work
    so that non-default installations can be run without root privileges.
    
    As evidence, with a small number of matching QA changes, the QA
    group of "sanity" tests can be run using a non-default installation.

    event records - unwind recent unsigned changes (part 2)
    
    Revert to the previous code now that ea_nrecords and er_nparams
    are back to being signed.

    pmcd.conf - pathname silliness
    
    As a result of the long and convoluted set of changes from early Irix
    versions to the present day, we were not being consistent about how
    pathnames for executables and DSOs are specified in pmcd.conf.
    
    It all broke when $PCP_DIR was set in the aftermath of trying to run
    a non-default installation after a configure --prefix=... build.
    
    Now we're using absolute pathnames in the initial pmcd.conf with the
    default PMDAs, in pmcd's parsing of pmcd.conf and in all the PMDA
    Install procedures.

    libpcp strerror_x - avoid overlapping dst and src in strcpy()
    
    Found by accident.  strerror_r may return the input buffer, which
    makes the strcpy not only redundant, but dangerous on some architectures.

    pcp.env - fix search logic for pcp.conf
    
    Logic was broken, and would not work with a non-default install using
    $PCP_DIR as the base of the installation.
    
    The (now) correct algorithm is:
    - if $PCP_CONF is set, use that value
    - else if $PCP_DIR, use $PCP_DIR/etc/etc.conf
    - else, use /etc/etc.conf

    pmapi.h - unwind some of the recent unsigned changes
    
    For event records, a couple of "array size" counts were changed
    from int to unsigned int in commit acd24f294f20719f8838ad62042b33d246f8c15e
    and this is not quite correct (these are not bit fields or flag fields).
    
    The original design (although we may not have a use case yet in the code
    base) was that these counters could be used to encode (negative) error
    codes, similar to numpmid in a pmResult or numval in a pmValueSet.
    
    But also, the expression p->ea_nrecords-1 became unsigned as a
    by product of the change, which broke some of the code.
    
    So revert ea_nrecords in pmEventArray and er_nparams in pmEventRecord
    back to an int.

    rc scripts - relax "are you running as root?" test
    
    If $PCP_DIR is set, then the check for uid == 0 is skipped.
    
    This is another piece of the configure --prefix=... fixups, so that
    a private PCP installation can be made and run, in which case nothing
    is required to be done as the user "root".

    pmpost - refine environment handling
    
    In an earlier life, pmpost was setuid root and we had an issue with
    possible bogus environment variables.  The fix for that issue would not
    allow $PCP_DIR nor $PCP_CONF to be passed in the environment, meaning
    the relocation of the /var/log/pcp/NOTICES file via pcp.conf did not work.
    
    pmpost is no longer setuid so allowing $PCP_CONF and $PCP_DIR to be
    retained should be OK ... in the process fixed a bug where the special
    case handling of $TZ was totally broken!

    Support configure --prefix=... and --exec-prefix=...
    
    Changes as requested in http://oss.sgi.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=921
    
    Running
        $ configure --prefix=/home/frank/mypcp
    will setup to move all the PCP related files into a directory
    tree below /home/frank/mypcp (--exec-prefix will setup to only move
    the architecture-specific binaries and libraries, which is less useful
    but comes for free in the autoconf wrappers).
    
    After configure has been run by hand,
        $ make install
    will install everything as expected below /home/frank/mypcp
    
    Note that none of the Makepkgs support understands any of this, so you
    cannot build installable packages (on any platform) using the --prefix=
    features of configure.

    buildrules - make clean fixup
    
    After the include files were moved to src/include/pcp, some final
    cleanup logic here needed some tweaking.
