I think there are only a few places that aren't controlled by the inn.conf
options. One of them is the path to inn.conf, which is referenced in
various places and which should have a hard-coded path.

Well, in theory it would be F<I<pathetc>/active> to be fully correct, but
in practice, that results in weird markup. So I usually use
I<pathetc>/active, which highlights the part that's the variable.
