When installing client from source with 'make client-install'

I have opted to allow creating /etc/ipa and
/var/lib/ipa-client/sysrestore only if DESTDIR is specified.
Distributing ipa-client in source form is defeating purpose of
FreeIPA, in most cases proper packaging should be preferred. What's
important is to hint to packagers what directories should be
essential, and thus created in $(DESTDIR). Even source-based
distributions have one or another form of packaging that makes this
issue less problematic.
I wonder if we should @echo something about DESTDIR not set so we aren't
creating the directories.
