Re: OpenPackages comments

There is a differing viewpoint here.  OpenBSD has pretty much been
heading towards a shar'able /usr/local and this means system config files
that are `system specific config files' belong in /etc.

Apparently FreeBSD has decided that everything including configuration
files go in /usr/local.

So long as these choices are variables, tweaked to each os's default
settings (the autoconf system spoken of earlier), I don't think this will
be much of an issue ;-)
