ess-5.2.1: ess-toolbar.el does not get compiled into elc file

thought rpm building problem was solved, but now i installed the rpm and 
it did not work because it can't find the etc directory and because the 
ess-toolbar.elc file does not exist.

partly, this is difficult because the Makefiles in ess do not respect 
the prefix assigned by the user.

make prefix=/tmp/ess install

for example, fails.  And no matter how you set prefix in Makeconf, it 
still tries to drop info files wherever it wants to, not relative to 
install directory.

Oh well.

After compiling that and installing it, I see the beautiful new toolbar 
additions and I think they are really great.
