I didn't run the install again, but looking at the find and sed
substitution syntax, it looks like you have a winner.

I had never created diff patch files before, so that's why I built
a patch to modify the seven affected Makefile.in files. 

Good job. I've installed over 75 packages IAW the BLFS book and
this is the first one where the installation was broken (from
an FHS standpoint, anyway)
