Looking at the install-data-local Makefile target, ilt looks like DESTDIR is supported for installing the DB in non-global locations. With the workaround of bug #315 that succeeds, however LinuxSampler still attempt to use the global location as follows:

$ telnet localhost 8888
Connected to localhost.
Escape character is '^]'.
ERR:0:Instruments DB directory '/var/lib/linuxsampler' does not exist!

Like already explained in #315, the problem is that there is currently no distinguishing between a temporary installation directory and final installation directory for the instruments DB.
