  It is not good behavior for systems, which have some rules about
FS hierarchy for third-party programs. FreeBSD is good example of
such system. You behave VERY BAD, if put something to /etc, and you
are not program from base system.

  Ok, I'll add patch to FreeBSD's port, it is not difficult. But I
don't think, it is good idea to put something not system-provided to
/etc in any case. For example, because / could be mountet read-only
after base system configuration. And all third-party programs should
not intersect with base ones!
