It's odd to have a architecture-specific directory (bin) under a no-architecture one (/usr/share).

But why have you filed a question as a bug report? See the section BUGS in the FAQ.

Simply, configure looks along your path for executables, so set the path suitably when running configure: it captures the full paths of the selected exectuables. E.g. I have

R_LATEXCMD=${R_LATEXCMD-${LATEX-'/usr/texbin/latex'}}

because I had /usr/texbin in my path when I configured R.
