direct links of old sources may well be a few messages off.

Even with --prefix and --sbindir defined, it still writes files into 
/sbin. The only way you could force it to write somewhere else is by 
prepending DESTDIR to 'make install'

When I run 'make DESTDIR=/tmp/DRBD install', after running configure 
with --prefix=/tmp/DRBD and --sbindir=/tmp/DRBD/sbin, I end up with 
/tmp/DRBD directory which contains another tmp/DRBD. So, the tree looks 
like this:

|-- sbin
|   |-- drbdadm
|   |-- drbdmeta
|   `-- drbdsetup
|-- tmp
|   `-- DRBD


`-- usr

All files in /tmp/DRBD/sbin/* are architecture depended (compiled). All 
files in /tmp/DRBD/tmp/DRBD/* are shell scripts, configuration files and 
man pages. True, there's one arch independed file that ends up in 
/tmp/DRBD/usr (resource file).
