You'll want to override the value of DIRPATHS with everything it
includes except for the exec prefix option.  Looking at the GAR code,
you should be able to simply add the line:

NODIRPATHS += --exec_prefix

to your recipe to have it filtered out of DIRPATHS without having to
redefine the whole value.  Doing it this way should be more future
proof for the recipe.
