Porting old RH-ENT-3 script that uses %INSTALL_DIR%?

Anyone know how to set variables in linux that will resolve to %INSTALL_DIR%? The old rpm was compatible with RHE3 and I am fighting with the install scripts as they run using these wired variable types. I have pasted the top part of the ./configure below:

. %INSTALL_DIR%/install/common

. %INSTALL_DIR%/install/licensing

. %INSTALL_DIR%/install/admin

. %INSTALL_DIR%/install/startup

. %INSTALL_DIR%/install/snmp

if [ "$flavor" = "$FLAVOR_RSA" ]; then

   . %INSTALL_DIR%/install/rsa_install_tool

    I ended up replacing all of the %INSTALL_DIR% with the path names and it solved the problem.
