Looking again at this bit of bpm:

                EXAMPLESDIR="${EXAMPLESDIR_REL}" \
                DATADIR="${DATADIR_REL}" \
                WWWDIR="${WWWDIR_REL}" \

You're right, the silliness is universal. I was focused on WWWDIR
because I was working with it. They should probably all go away, but I
don't have the time atm to do an exhaustive search on where/how they are
all used.
