Description Joshua Baergen 2006-11-04 15:57:13 UTC
There is very little reference to $sysconfdir in the build system - with
daniels' input-hotplug additions, there are 3 references:

~/xorg/xserver $ grep sysconfdir -R *
config/Makefile.am:dbusconfigdir = $(sysconfdir)/dbus-1/system.d
configure.ac:   CONFIGFILE="$sysconfdir/$XF86CONFIGFILE"
hw/xprint/etc/Xsession.d/Makefile.am:xpcdir = $(sysconfdir)/X11/Xsession.d

Since the dbus file belongs in $sysconfdir and xprint references
$sysconfdir/X11, I think CONFIGFILE should also reference $sysconfdir/X11.

Sorry about the phenomenal bug spam, guys.  Adding xorg-team@ to the QA contact so bugs don't get lost in future.
