Why are these in /usr/pkg/etc/httpd, rather than /etc/httpd? Do we
expect machines sharing /usr to be sharing httpd config files and
The whole concept of /usr/pkg/etc makes sense to me only for things
that don't change between systems, such as files to be called from
rc.local. We don't put ssh configuration files in /usr/pkg/etc; it
seems to me we shouldn't put other programs' configuration files
I'd be happy to make this change, if it's ok with everyone.
