build: use --runstatedir instead of --localstatedir The util-linux code was previously aligned to use @localstatedir@ and the util-linux build system was set to override the default to use /run. Current GNU Coding Standards introduced the @runstatedir@ variable for this purpose. Lets use that instead. The GNU default for @runstatedir@ is ${localstatedir}/run so util-linux still override the default to be /run to preserve the status quo from before. The only difference is that you'll now pass --runstatedir to override the location on the command line instead of --localstatedir. (FWIW, Debhelper in compat 11 will automatically start passing --runstatedir=/run to all autotools configured builds. It already passes --localstatedir=/var (to avoid it ending up with the GNU default /usr/local/var) which breaks the util-linux build system code that tries to default it to /run. This change will thus allow util-linux and debhelper to work better together and avoid the need for a package-specific override.)
