As far as I understand the agents are already installed in 
~/share/check_mk/agents and can be loaded via main.mk with

all_hosts = [ 'localhost|local' ]

datasource_programs = [
  ( "~/share/check_mk/agents/check_mk_agent.linux", ['local'], ALL_HOSTS ),

My biggest problem is the absence of check_mk as binary. There is no way 
to use this command. Not as root and neither as omd user. any suggestions?
