Actually, yes. I tried redefining repexecdir first, but as it turns out,
repexecdir can't be redefined when invoking make because Makedefs is
included, and that file expects repexecdir to contain the default value. The
makefiles from rep-gtk are arranged similarly, so they have an additional
variable to be used by the install targets for this same reason.
