With automake the resulting variables are all lowercase. Perhaps thats
the reason why configure uses also lowercase. Just xen uses uppercase
for all variables.

So my options are either: expand to lowercase variables and assign to
existing uppercase variables later in that file. Or do a treewide
conversion from upper to lowercase.

Looks like the simplest change would be to expand all variables from
configure in Paths.mk and assign them later to existing variables.
