Isn't that an unusual way of doing things? I never had a problem (on EL5) starting off ./configure and doing this:

    # http://www.adaptivecomputing.com/resources/docs/gold/x364.php
    ./configure --prefix=/opt/soft/gold-  … 

    make gui
    make deps
    make install install-gui

In looking at this, to me it appears that this will cure the problem in the install process, but I believe it will break the LOG_DIR substitutions in the goldsh histfile and  the Log.Filename in each of the configuration files, since these will not know how to resolve "${prefix}". I will need to resolve these issues before applying the patch.
