gfxboot: make install needed

172 # gfxboot themes will soon get a make install - promised by snwint
173 # gfxboot should use a link /etc/bootsplash/theme -> /usr/share/bootsplash
174 # like splashy
There is not date written but I guess it would be about time :-)
In any case, does that stuff really need to be in /etc? The location used by gfxboot-devel seems more appropriate, ie /usr/share/gfxboot/themes/
btw, note that SLE also uses the openSUSE theme as base and copies different images over it. So maybe it would make sense to remove SLES and SLED from git.
The whole gfxboot branding business has turned into a mess. :-(
Yes. A suggestion that would maybe make it more easy:
- drop all themes except he openSUSE one from gfxboot
- rename the openSUSE theme to 'default' or 'upstream' and only install that one. Put some generic images instead of the openSUSE ones.
- the separate TW, Leap and SLE specific branding packages can then copy the default theme and only replace some images.
Tracking in YaST scrum board.
