  Ah, yes, really, i simply forgot this.
  In fact IMHO it's not a bug in autoconf. We supply prefix without a 
trailing slash, so concatenation is ok here. Root directory would be 
expressed by empty prefix, really. Just i forgot about UNC paths...
  Should be noticed somewhere in easy-to-reach FAQ i think...
