I'd much rather see us unify the different makefile .in conversions to
use the same syntax - I see:

libvirtd.8.in: s!SYSCONFDIR!$(sysconfdir)!g

libvirtd.policy.in, libvirtd.logrotate.in, libvirtd.qemu.logrotate.in,
...: s![ ]authaction[@]!$(policyauth)!g

libvirtd.init.in, libvirtd.service.in:
s!\ localstatedir\@!$(localstatedir)!g
(hmm, \@ is not a portable regex, and may die on some platforms)

virtlockd.init.in: s!::localstatedir::!$(localstatedir)!g

That is, I think the most common style is using @var@ in the file being
replaces, and using [ ]var[@] in the makefile, and the outliers
(libvirtd.8 with ALLCAPS instead of @var@, and virtlockd with ::var::
instead of @var@) are best converted over to the common format.
