Thanks, I'll apply this with a bit different text:

These paths look quite confusing to me since I'd first attempt to
replace the ${FOO} path with libnl installation root directory and that
would result in the paths being incorrect since 3plibs and server/local
here look very much specific to some non-common case (i.e., "make
install" in libnl would not do that by default).
