I cannot confirm that, unless of course you have used the --share-prefix

The change was that gp was looking for galdata in $datadir. Now it looks
in $datadir/galdata. See changes C-14 and A-4.

Wrong :) pari.cfg is system-dependent while the other files are 
system-independent, so are put in $share_prefix.

However, I don't pretend we have made no bugs with the new setting

What bother me most currently is the minimal perl version
required to build pari from CVS.
