Default plptools config error

Hi,

not sure if this is the right place to post this ... is anyone here
maintaining the plptools package?

The plptools in ubuntu (hardy) are malconfigured. The problem manifests itself
when using the plpprintd daemon. The daemon attempts to access files
named "fontmap" and "prolog.ps" which it expects to find in
directory "${prefix}/share/plptools". The correct directory name (for Ubuntu)
would be "/usr/share/plptools", i.e. ${prefix} is included in a string
unsubstituted. Rebuilding from source, i managed to work around the problem
by hand-editing the autogenerated file "include/config.h",
replacing "${prefix}" by "/usr", but there has got to be a better way to fix
this in the distro.

Cheers

Rob
