+Installation of vdrpbd daemon
+---------------------------------
+
+vdrpbd is a "self-containing" perl script. In theory no installation
+is needed. To simplify the installation process, a simple Makefile has been
+added nonetheless. If you use it, you also get a man page installed, which is
+autogenerated from the POD documentation built into the vdrpbd script.
+
+To install vdrpbd, type
+
+make install
+
+To uninstall, you may use
+
+make uninstall
+
+If you just call "make", then anything, the Makefile does, is to generate the
+man page.
+
+The recommended call to package vdrpbd would be:
+
+make PREFIX=/usr DESTDIR=/path/to/packagedir install
+
+There is an optional dependency to the Net::DBus Perl module. It is used to
+inhibit the power key on systemd based Linux systems, so systemd doesn't handle
+the key on its own. \ No newline at end of file
