I was referring to the configuration files referenced in the README
docs for otopi, ovirt-host-deploy, ovirt-setup-lib, and
ovirt-js-dependencies. I'm not sure that running the make install will
put the required configuration files in the directories that the
programs will expect to find them. If it turns out that that is the
case, then I think I am all set. I installed postgresql from the
Debian repositories.
