Maybe I didn't explain it very well.

I mean that if the user uses as prefix PREFIX, then the ffmpeg binary
should look at the preset files in $prefix/share/ffmpeg, for example
if she installs ffmpeg in $HOME the presets should be looked for in

Also maybe it would be a good idea to automatically install the
already packaged preset files in PREFIX/share/ffmpeg.
