Autoconf provides a prefix variable for you. Just test the value of $prefix
(note though that I expect you should really be using the datadir variable,
also provided by autoconf).
I have no idea where .qm files go, or what they are, but if you are not using
automake, you can include something like this in your aclocal.m4 file:
if test -n "$datadir" && test "$datadir" != "NONE"; then
and then export it in your Makefile.in file with something like:
and then pass that as a definition using the g++ -D flag.
If you are using automake all this is handled for you. You just need
qmdir = $(datadir)/qm
INCLUDES = -DQMDIR=\"$(qmdir)\"
in your Makefile.am file. QMDIR will then appear as a standard C preprocessor
macro definition which you can use in the usual way.
