Any chance of defining and using sbindir rather than hardcoding /usr/sbin,
in the same way you define and use mandir and docdir?

I have to carry a patch against the current makefile for my systems which
have neither /usr or /sbin, just /bin, but equally many people will want to
configure to install into /usr/local/sbin. The annoyance of doing this will
increase if we go from one makefile needing changing to lots of makefiles
needing changing!
