That should never be neccessary. You can set any environment variable
that's in the Makefile.inc (eg export  FINALCONFDDIR=/usr/local/etc)

Yes, these are bugs. They should use roper preprocessing using @ variables,
as is done elsewhere. Eg see programs/Makefile.program:

                         -e "s:@IPSEC_DIR@:$(FINALBINDIR):" \
                         -e "s:@IPSEC_EXECDIR@:$(FINALLIBEXECDIR):" \
                         -e "s:@IPSEC_SBINDIR@:$(FINALSBINDIR):" \
                         -e "s:@IPSEC_LIBDIR@:$(FINALLIBDIR):" \
                         -e "s:@FINALCONFDIR@:$(FINALCONFDIR):" \
                         -e "/@${OSDEP}_START@/,/@${OSDEP}_END@/d" \
                         -e "s:@EXAMPLECONFDIR@:$(EXAMPLECONFDIR):" \
                         -e "s:@FINALDOCDIR@:$(FINALDOCDIR):" \
                         -e "s:@FINALEXAMPLECONFDIR@:$(FINALEXAMPLECONFDIR):" \
                         -e "s:@RSAKEYBITS@:$(RSAKEYBITS):" \
