During agent package installation on Linux (.rpm or .deb package), some shell scripts get executed that are located under the directory /var/lib/cmk-agent.

This lead to problems, because on some environments, the /var directory is mounted with noexec-flag and hence the scripts failed to execute.

To fix this situation, the installation scripts now get executed by passing them to /bin/sh.
