How to make a binary release of Angband 4.1.0

I made a kind of variant of Angband 4.1.0 (see a few years ago and never made a Windows binary of it. Now I have a Windows 8.1 computer and have installed msys2 and so on, and want to make a Windows binary that people can download.

In ./configure, there are three options for installation: shared scorefile (like on old fashioned Unix server), private directory, and "with no install". Each option sets a different path or paths for game data, etc. From the output of ./configure, it looks like the path is always to something particular to my computer. Is there a graceful way to have it have a relative path, so that it would work wherever the user installed it? I assume that when the developers make a binary for distribution, they have some way to make it work that way.
