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.

path suitably when running configure: it captures the full paths of
the selected exectuables. E.g. I have
because I had /usr/texbin in my path when I configured R.
