I also hate iTunes for it's lack of flexibility- but on this particular issue, I do the following:
1. Export the library to file.
2. Copy the library file onto your new computer
3. Copy the media library (ie files) onto your new computer. They MUST go into the same location as they were on the old computer - the full path.
4. Import the library file onto the new computer.
If you're chucking out the old computer, don't forget to de-authorise the old one and also authorise your new one.
It might be possible to edit the library xml file to point to a new library path - I haven't tried. Perhaps also to import the library, then edit the library path after and it'll pick up the files already there.
