Apologis, I should have made it clear what I was getting at. The Debian/Ubuntu packaging already does segregate out the *.conf and pg_log into other locations based on the FHS. On a Debian-based system, there really shouldn't be anything that the user is expected to touch under /var/lib (where the PG data directory lives). Thanks! Stephen
