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.

you bet it is. for example, suse-packaged kdm has a long track record of
confusing the hell out of users with this approach.
i'd much prefer a clean switch to sysconfdir, which is presumably what
the debian packaging does.

Oswald, your advice is always appreciated. Let's see what the rest of the MC developes think about that patch and whether Jindrich is willing to change his patch.
