I think we can just use @httpdir@ and possibly change its default as

Note that there's no way to tell Autoconf to create a new --*dir option;
the only ones supported are the ones hard-coded into Autoconf. files can only add --with-* options and --enable-* options.
That's why INN has a bunch of --with-* options that ideally should be
--*dir options.
