Thanks, --datadir works all right!

In fact, I thought, that there was some auto-detection of the data-prefix,
dependent on the placement of texmf-dist, but it seems that's no more true.

JFYI, --datarootdir give an error:
=== configuring in ncurses (/tmp/texlive-work/Build/source/work/libs/ncurses)
