I don't think I like that. I dislike our usage of configure,
but we had to do that move to comply with some packaging guidelines.

Just "configure" with something sane, not the insanity autofoo and
packaging guidelines forced upon us.

Which would be, as suggested by our "autogen.sh":
./configure --prefix=/usr --localstatedir=/var --sysconfdir=/etc

Or better yet, _package_ drbd as .rpm or .deb,
which will do the configure properly for you anyways.

I'm very much unsure if DRBD will function properly
if you deviate from that. It may.
We certainly do not test any other locations.
