Summary: make install change: Allow $DESTDIR to be relative

Initial Comment:
This patch allows the $DESTDIR variable used in 'make
install' to be a relative path.  It also avoids
constructing filenames starting with double slashes
('//') when DESTDIR is an absolute path.

Tested on RedHat 9.0 Linux on x86.

I'd also like to see the argument to 'configure --prefix='
also be relative. Could this patch be expanded in that
direction?
