[rrd-users] RRD Makefile fix for GNU-centric install assumption

  The current RRD makefile uses portable installation code most places,
but in one place (installing Perl modules) it uses the "install -d"
construct which is specific to GNU install, and doesn't work on OSes
using the BSD-derived install.  (In this case, BSD/OS.)

  May I recommend modifying the sole "install -d" to use something more

        test -d $(PERLLIBS)/auto/RRDs \
        || mkdir $(PERLLIBS)/auto/RRDs \
        || exit 1; \
        chmod 755 $(PERLLIBS)/auto/RRDs

  Note that I also changed the target directory variable to PERLLIBS -
I wanted it to install the Perl modules into
/usr/libdata/perl5/site_perl (where it belongs on our system) and
couldn't see a clear way to do this with the existing Makefile.in and
configure options.  If I figure that out, I'll post or email a proper
Makefile patch, but for now I'm being lazy.
