Original install.sh mechanizm was quite cranky when it
came to custom install (which I needed and I bet if
anyone is doing packaging for this software they've
faces same problem).

So in this patch I added couple of new features:
install.cfg which describes all needed directories and
config.py which generates list of variable definitions
for python and bash so both are using same directories
throughout. Also original install.sh and couple ofother
files where modified to take advantage from implemented
mechanizm.

I guess ideal solution would be to use python's
distutils but I have not time for this and current
solution at least lets you modify thing or two making
install more FHS compliant or whatever FH standard you use.

    Thanks for the patch, it certainly looks much cleaner then
    my "quick hack" approach :-)
    I will have a more in depth look in the next few days.

    Thanks,
