Attached is the patch with some changelog.

Before we can think out the right way to pass all options, I think passing
prefix and libdir is good enough for now:

1. prefix is most widely used.
2. libdir becomes important as x86 and x86_64 get into the same system.
3. Default values for other options seems the same across build systems.
