Using a Different Configuration File

I installed TLF from the Arch User Repository. The first time I ran it,
it created ~/tlf, and copied a working file structure into it, including
rules, a logcfg.dat, and other files. I successfully edited the
logcfg.dat and began using it, but I can't seem to figure out how to use
another log file. I tried the obvious way of copying logcfg.dat to a new
file, say qrpfoxhunt.dat, and invoking with

tlf -f qrpfoxhunt.dat

I then read the older documentation, which suggested setting up a
directory structure. I created ~/tlf/qrpfoxhunt and moved the
qrpfoxhunt.dat to ~/tlf/qrpfoxhunt/logcfg.dat. I also copied in
rules/contest. I then tried a number of invocations:

tlf -f qrpfoxhunt

tlf -f ~/tlf/qrpfoxhunt

tlf -f ~/tlf/qrpfoxhunt/logcfg.dat

but nothing works. What have I missed?

I use a screen reader for the blind, and think this program would work
well for me.

Thanks for your help.
