OK, next variant coming:

Andreas Beckmann (7):
      Makefile: DESTDIR support for all install* targets
      set 'prefix' and 'DESTDIR' for build and install targets
      lib/read_config.sh: get_config_value() used by all master/slave
      Makefile: add support for placeholders in scripts
      master/slave-bin: rename * -> *.in to allow substitutions
      source read_config.sh instead of embedding a copy of
      read_config.sh: support RFC822 wrapped+indented lines

First we need to fix up DESTDIR support and call the Makefile with
sensible 'prefix' and 'etcdir' settings ... so that we can actually use
$prefix (or better $sharedir) to set the path at build time.
And now we can source anything :-)
