Can we just drop the configure nonsense again instead?

As /var/run/ is a tmpfs on many distros now, subdirs and other things in
it need to be recreated anyways as needed, which drbdsetup is actually
supposed to be doing.

And "someone" (the OS) is supposed to cleanup those dirs on reboot,
which won't happen with the braindead configure autofoo defautls,
which again may (or may not) confuse some things.

Ah, well, thanks for the patch, anyways ;)
