this are the result on a untweaked debian:
Using RT configurations from /usr/share/request-tracker3/lib/RT.pm:
./lib   => /usr/local/share/request-tracker3/lib
./sbin  => /usr/local/share/request-tracker3/sbin
configure: creating ./config.status
config.status: creating sbin/rtx-shredder
config.status: creating sbin/rtx-validator
config.status: creating lib/RTx/Shredder.pm
Writing Makefile for RTx::Shredder

okay what seems to be not okay is in Makefile
SITEPREFIX = $(PREFIX)/local (Makefile)
SITEPREFIX = /usr/local/share/request-tracker3 (debian)

and the rt sbin dir is under debian in:

but sorry yesterday I also installed ExtractCustomFieldValues
which failed due to a wrong path to rt-setup-database. so
in the case of shredder it is minor important. it worked out
of the box.

best regards (and thanks for 6500 wiped out tickets :-)
