$prefix/share/doc/boxbackup is where it will end up on MacPorts.  This  
seems to be semi-standard (e.g. /usr/local/share/doc/progname on  
freebsd and a few linuxes I checked)

The --foodir knobs are getting overridden by the lines those regexes  
clear out.  Take a look at configure, and the explicit sysconfdir='/ 
etc' assignment happens after the conditional logic to set it via the  

The default locations relative to --prefix are correct in the current  
version of configure, so the explicit --foodir= flags are left out...   
Once I can remove those two regexes the flags should be enough.

Thanks for the work, I know a little of how frustrating packaging a  
release is...
