OK, here is the thing - "/var" is hardcoded twice - as "/var/heimdal"
and "/var/run".
@localstatedir@ usually denotes "/var"-like location. Now, while
looks sane, @localstatedir@/lib/@PACKAGE_NAME@ will lead you back to
which probably makes (Solaris?) people unhappy.
Should we add something like ''--with-dbdir=" switch?

I will implement the fix, as long as we all are happy with design.
