       Sometimes the standard directories--even as augmented by Automake--
    are not enough.  In particular it is sometimes useful, for clarity, to
    install objects in a subdirectory of some predefined directory.  To this
    end, Automake allows you to extend the list of possible installation
    directories.  A given prefix (e.g. `zar') is valid if a variable of the
    same name with `dir' appended is defined (e.g. `zardir').

Nope.  Though you can tweak it after the fact in an install-hook.

Automake is really libtool-centric for this sort of thing.
