It's hardwired in the manager. If you want, you can write a short
enhancement request on the Ekiga bugzilla (bugzilla.gnome.org).

If you "just want to change it, if necessary in the source":
It's in src/endpoints/manager.cpp, method GMManager::SavePicture:
"dirname = (gchar *) g_get_home_dir ();"

lacking zero, they had no way to indicate successful termination of
their C programs" --Robert Firth
