build: change default driver installation directory
As part of the effort of consolidating the DPDK installation bits and pieces across distros, set the default directory of lib/ where PMDs get installed to dpdk/pmds-XX.YY. It's necessary to have a versioned subdirectory as multiple ABI revisions might be installed at the same time, so having a fixed name will cause trouble with the autoload feature. Small refactor with parsing and saving the major version to a variable, since it's now used in 3 different places.
