Upstream ansiweather allows for a configuration file to exist in the user's home directory. pkgsrc changes this behaviour so that only a system-wide configuration file is read.

The pkgsrc behaviour surprised me. Perhaps a better solution would be to check if the user has a configuration file and use that, otherwise use the system-wide configuration?

1) Create ~/.ansiweatherrc
2) Run ansiweather
3) Configuration file is ignored
See above for a suggestion.
