Please, PLEASE, remove the BASEDIR from Makefile

SAMBA is still using BASEDIR:


PLEASE, don't do it!!! With autoconf you have exactly needed
parameters --bindir, --sbindir, etc
It is possible to default them to whatever directories you like. Curently
configure from SAMBA silently lies:

./configure --help

  --prefix=PREFIX         install architecture-independent files in PREFIX
  --exec-prefix=EPREFIX   install architecture-dependent files in EPREFIX
                          [same as prefix]
  --bindir=DIR            user executables in DIR [EPREFIX/bin]

where's bindir is actually set to $Pprefix)/samba, without *any* way to
change it without editing Makefile.
