The problem is touched upon in

*Bug 9749* <http://bugs.koha-community.org/bugzilla3/show_bug.cgi?id=9749>
- Placeholders
in koha-conf.xml generated by the Debian packages by Magnus Enger

The workaround for my Z39.50 situation would seem to be to set the needed
variables in the generated code.

In a given instance of koha-conf.xml how does one set the value

<listen id="publicserver" >tcp:@:__ZEBRA_SRU_BIBLIOS_PORT__</listen>

 <ZEBRA_SRU_HOST="localhost" ZEBRA_SRU_BIBLIOS_PORT="9998"> does not work.
