Maybe we are both right :-)  I didn't run make && make install with the
book's instructions so I can't confirm that two directories *are* produced.

I's a fact, however, that if you run --libexecdir=/usr/lib/sudo you *will*
receive a warning from the configure script that reads: WARNING: libexecdir
should not include the "sudo" subdirectory.  Running --libexecdir=/usr/lib
does not produce the warning, but still provides the required /usr/lib/sudo.

If, as you say, two directories *aren't* produced then the configure script
must be compensating for the error.  However, it is *still* an error and
should be rectified in the book.
