/etc is the standard location for controlfiles, (at least on SYSV
systems, I'm not sure about *BSD) and I think it suffice to support
/etc/monitrc as we do now, in addition to $HOME/.monitrc as Martin
mention. I.e. no need for setting this at compile time I feel.

Apropos file locations; the new monit state function (currently in
CVS, but will be part of the next release) use a file to save the
current monit state in $HOME/.monit.state. I think it could be
beneficial to be able to set the location of this file, for instance
/var/run/monit.state in addition to $HOME/.monit.state. The reason is
that monit will chocke if the /home partition was unmounted for some
reason while monit is running. Any thoughts on this?
