Hmm.  I've got a couple of machines running sendmail 8.9.1, and it
likes to put those in /etc/mail.  The sendmail docs claim that all the
other files are eventually going to get moved into there, too.

I think I don't like the idea of putting some of these on /var, but
/etc/db sounds like kind of a good idea.
