It happened to be close to impossible to make standard GNU switches work - defaults for them, that can't be changed at first glance, are not appropriate for us.
Therefore to make it possible to adjust files' locations I've had to add a set of new configure switches.

  --with-fbbin executables DIR (PREFIX/bin)
  --with-fbsbin system admin executables DIR (PREFIX/bin)
  --with-fbconf config files DIR (PREFIX)
  --with-fblib object code libraries DIR (PREFIX/lib)
  --with-fbinclude C/C++ header files DIR (PREFIXinclude)
  --with-fbdoc documentation root DIR (PREFIX/doc)
  --with-fbudf UDF DIR (PREFIX/UDF)
  --with-fbsample examples DIR (PREFIX/examples)
  --with-fbsample-db examples database DIR (PREFIX/examples/empbuild)
  --with-fbhelp QLI help DIR (PREFIX/help)
  --with-fbintl international DIR (PREFIX/intl)
  --with-fbmisc misc DIR (PREFIX/misc)
  --with-fbsecure-db security database DIR (PREFIX)
  --with-fbmsg message files DIR (PREFIX)
  --with-fblog log files DIR (PREFIX)
  --with-fbglock guardian lock DIR (PREFIX)
  --with-fbplugins plugins DIR (PREFIX)

Also improved ib_util loader to make engine work correctly with new files layout.
