An example for this relocation, the apache log file;
openpkg, mandrake and suse have the log in a different location.  However, if 
the code would use @httpd_log_file@ instead of 
@l_prefix@/var/kolab/log/apache (by heart it may not be the exact location, 
it is just to get an idea), or instead of #!@l_prefix@/bin/perl, one would 
use # @PERL@  it would be easier to adapt the kolab code for a specific 
distribution.  I use 'adapt' and not _integrated_ as that can only be done 
after the code has been made relocatable.
