ch6 VIm-6.1: why not --sysconfdir=/etc?

In CVS 20030513 chapter 6 Vim-6.1:

It currently reads:
./configure --prefix=/usr
make CPPFLAGS=-DSYS_VIMRC_FILE=\\\"/etc/vimrc\\\"

Why not instead do:
./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc

As far as I can tell from grepping thorough the source code files for 
SYS_VIMRC_FILE it does the same thing and looks a lot less messy.
