This is no better. The LSB does however not specify the content of this file,
but there are some other commands that parse it and their output is specified:

  http://refspecs.linuxfoundation.org/LSB_5.0.0/LSB-Core-generic/LSB-Core-generi
c/lsbrelease.html

So release should contain the release number of the distribution. "IPFire" is
not our release version.

Please specify the exact destination. It makes the builds less messy.
