The choice to default it to "/etc" rather than "${prefix}/etc" is
deliberate, for historical compatibility.  But the standard --sysconfdir
option is honoured if you wish to override it.  (Commit c185645,
November 2003.)
The help text for --sysconfdir is provided by autotools, not by us.
"[PREFIX/etc]" is wrong for our case, but I don't know of a way to
override it with our own text.  Does anyone else?
