I guess I don't see a meaningful difference here. We're still writing to /etc when we modify krb5.conf. My reading of the FHS is that this is not an intended use of /var/lib: /var/lib is for state information , and the only time the FHS mentions config files is to point out that they go in the /etc tree. Anyway, I've said my piece and won't derail this further. If you want to merge, this is a cosmetic issue and I can live with it. : http://www.pathname.com/fhs/pub/fhs-2.3.html#VARLIBVARIABLESTATEINFORMATION
