Nuke the gsettingsschemadir pc variable

Not really useful, just use $(prefix)/glib-2.0/schemas. We are getting
m4 sugar to coat this over, anyway.

The XML source file for your GSettings schema needs to get installed
into <filename>$datadir/glib-2.0/schemas</filename>, and needs to be
compiled into a binary form by the <link linkend="gschema-compile">gschema-compile</link>
utility. GIO provides variables <literal>gsettingsschemadir</literal>

compiled into a binary form. At runtime, GSettings looks for compiled
schemas in the <filename>glib-2.0/schemas</filename> subdirectories
of all <envar>XDG_DATA_DIRS</envar> directories, so if you install
your schema in a different location, you need to set the
<envar>XDG_DATA_DIRS</envar> environment variable appropriately.

Schemas are compiled into binary form by the
<link linkend="gschema-compile">gschema-compile</link> utility.
GIO provides a <literal>gsettingsupdateschemacache</literal>
variable for the schema compiler, which can be used in
<filename>configure.in</filename> as follows:
<programlisting>
AC_SUBST(gsettingsschemadir, `pkg-config --variable gsettingsschemadir gio-2.0`)
AC_SUBST(gsettingsupdateschemacache, `pkg-config --variable gsettingsupdateschemacache gio-2.0`)
</programlisting>
The corresponding <filename>Makefile.am</filename> fragment looks like
this:
<programlisting>
gsettingsschemadir = $(prefix)/glib-2.0/schemas
gsettingsschema_DATA = my.app.gschema.xml
install-data-hook:
$(gsettingsupdateschemacache) $(gsettingsschemadir)
$(gsettingsupdateschemacache) $(DESTDIR)$(gsettingsschemadir)
</programlisting>
