I think the patch is pretty straigth forward. I am not really sure that we
want to check both mc_home and mc_home_alt though. Anyway, if noone
objects I'll commit this patch.

I would keep both checks for a while to not to break mc when someone
decides he wants the configs in one place as it used to be
(/usr/share/mc). On the other hand we could remove the dual checks after
some time when the most of the mc users are aware of the change. I can
write a patch for it as well then.

I don't want to start a big discussion about it - either way it is acceptable. I just occured to me that it may be confusing for the
end user if both paths are checked. If someone wants to store the
config files in the old place he just needs to configure MC accordingly.
What's more important if someone wants to use their old config files
without doing anything it won't work either. So in both cases the
user has to be aware of the fact that MC looks for config files in a different place.
