Werk #7774: Fix installation issue on older debian based distros

CompatibilityCompatible - no manual interaction needed

The werk #7344 introduced compatibility issues with Linux setups that don't support linux capabilities (for different reasons). One reason may be a kernel that does not support the capabilities.

We have added a fallback to the Checkmk debian packages that tries to use the linux capabilities (as described in #7344). Once that fails it falls back to setting the SETUID bit on the binaries, just like Checkmk did it before.
