The changes in this patch series + Dan's suggestion to variablize the
@PM-UTILS-WHATEVER@ substitutions has been pushed to the
freedesktop.org master.

The upshot is that now you can override the installed location of
pm-utils using the standard autotools methods (for testing or
whatever), and the scripts will not break.
* distro maintainers should keep /usr/lib/pm-utils/functions in the
same place, or hooks that source functions directly (instead of
through $PM_FUNCTIONS) will break.
* If you want to hack on scripts which are transformed by autotools,
you will need to edit the .in versions and run make clean && make.
