RMS is saying that the user should have a way to turn this off.  Ie,
the user should be able to tell Emacs _not_ to look in
/etc/site-start.d (if that's the right directory name).

I don't know what happens when you do "emacs --no-site-file", but I
presume that this prevents /etc/site-start.d from being looked at.

~/.signature: No such file or directory
