More cleanup (was Re: MakeLib removed)

while we're cleaning up stuff, might it not be a good idea to use the
standard autoconf variables, where available?

Currently, we have --with-config-path instead of --sysconfdir and 
--with-lib-dir intead of --libdir, and we use @prefix@/bin instead of
@bindir at . I fail to see any rationale for this, except to gratuitously
confuse the user of course. ;-)

NB, here's a small patch to weed a few unnecessary libraries.
