git-gui: Avoid use of libdir in Makefile
Dmitry V. Levin pointed out that on GNU linux libdir is often used in Makefiles to mean "/usr/lib" or "/usr/lib64", a directory that is meant to hold platform-specific binary files. Using a different libdir meaning here in git-gui's Makefile breaks idomatic expressions like rpm specifile "make libdir=%_libdir". Originally I asked that the git.git Makefile undefine libdir before it calls git-gui's own Makefile but it turns out this is very hard to do, if not impossible. Renaming our libdir to gg_libdir resolves this case with a minimum amount of fuss on our part. Signed-off-by: Shawn O. Pearce <>
