Well, I understand: things like /etc/init.d shell scripts should be
decided by the system admin... Thanks to all !

But right now, I've a little problem because my server has a
configuration file. I thought that the best place to place it would be
the /etc folder... It seems that it's precisely the default value of
$(sysconfigdir), but I don't know if it's possible to my server (my
programm) knows this value from the header config.h.

Furthermore, the configuration file should be placed in
$(sysconfigdir) at the install process. So, Makefile should receive
the value of $(sysconfigdir) from the configuration process.

What should I do in my ?... Would be necessary to make
changes in my ?

What do you suggest ?
