No. In this case I don't agree. Rc-scripts _should_ on a RedHat box be put
in /etc/rc.d/init.d/, while on a Debian the path is slightly different.
All packages should obey this rule, I think. I'll keep my small scripts
that try to detect which one is used and stick with that. The config-file
will however obey --sysconfdir. But, if the config-file is stuffed in some
location where even the non-existent God doesn't find it, it's up to the
user to make sure the Zombie daemon is started with the switch 
'-c /path/to/config-file'.

So be it.
