sorry, i can't remember why i removed the absolute paths. But i suspect
it was because the install script does not replace the paths, so it is
not relocatable with absolute paths. 
IMHO the binary installation script does not modify the paths, so the
package would'nt be relocatable with absolute paths. 

The other question is why FIFOs are needed in this case.
