May need to define in Makefile:
and use ${PKG_SYSCONFDIR}.

Also consider using a INSTALL script with post-install target instead of

I think you should just use a MESSAGE. I don't know the configuration,
but since not managed by tools, I'd assume that some users may lose
comments and organization automatically if they just move it. They may
want to review it first. (I guess your script could create a backup copy 
instead though.
