But
if [ -e ./Config.exe ] && [ -e ./Makefile.am ] ; then
    echo "*** Running uninstalled Config.exe ***"
    THIS_PATH="../Util:../BeagleClient"
    THIS_EXE="./Config.exe"
    THIS_FILTERS="../Filters"
else
    THIS_PATH="/usr/lib/beagle:/usr/lib"
    THIS_EXE="/usr/lib/beagle/Config.exe"
fi

crap in all the scripts certainly is not the standard for many types of
apps.  This has no business to be in the installed version of the scripts,
there we know we want to run the installed one and really shouldn't change
behavior depending on content of the current working directory.
