Just a reminder: I'm still waiting for those tags. There is nothing
more recent than v3.2rc1 from 9 months ago. Thanks.

Oh, I missed the logic in initsystems/Makefile. Thanks for the hint.

For my use case, I actually want to install both the openrc script and
the systemd unit so that our users can switch between the two init
systems with as little pain as possible. It seems the easiest way to
do that is to set INITSYSTEM= in the environment and then call make -C
initsystems/openrc and make -C initsystems/systemd myself.
