[Box Backup] Small tweak to makeparcels.pl

makeparcels.pl assumes that the directory it is installing into (e.g.
/usr/local/bin) exists. Because of the way Gentoo ebuilds work, this is not
usually the case for us, so we are carrying a trivial patch to
makeparcels.pl.in. It would be nice if this change made it into the base

                        print SCRIPT "install $name " .


P.S. For the Gentoo fans out there, I have just done an update to the
pending boxbackup 0.11_rc2 ebuild. See Gentoo bug at 205558
