Don't you hate it when people don't bother to test all your -rc's, then
report bugs against your final release?  Me too.

  mkdir /tmp/dest
  make DESTDIR=/tmp/dest install

fails because it tries to install osd_login in /tmp/dest/sbin/osd_login
without first creating /tmp/dest/sbin.  All other required directories get
created first.

This patch - stealing an idea from utils/mount - seem to fix it.

    osd_login - ensure /sbin is created before installation.
    If we use a more standard approach to describing the osd_login
    script, the automake infrastructure will create /sbin before
    attempting installation.
    This is important for: make DESTDIR=/empty-dir install
