Yes. I tested again with NOINSTALL=true and when that's in makefile it
causes make programs ; make install to fail because there is no setup to
install to /etc/init.d/ipsec. So with NOINSTALL=true there won't be
setup in OBJ dir after make programs.

I managed to find out why I didn't have extra setup in init.d dir - I
had old (several years old) rm -f to make sure there won't be extra
setup there. :-)
