Lets settle on /etc, then. If the package has multiple files, then
maybe create an /etc/FOO subdirectory (e.g. /etc/amanda -- Amanda
wants subdirectoris in the config directory, so I think making it
/etc is not a good solution).
I'd really be happy to see this decided so we can fix any packages
that might install machine specific files in /usr/pkg. I currently
have amanda changes pending to do that.
