minor nit: your patch has "files.h" still say "" in the header. otherwise, this looks good + works well for me.

The *_LOC variables are never used in the build itself, but only in the
built code; this means that they don't need to be known to ./configure at

Since the previous method made acct not cross-compilable at all, this is
much preferred.

Note: before applying this patch it is necessary to execute

% svn mv files.h

otherwise it won't apply cleanly.
