Hmm, I'm not sure about these last four. These are not really 
"configuration" files even though they are in a subdirectory of 

A case could be made for preserving the old version on a new install, 
but then we'd have to do that for all the files in /etc/rc.d/init.d as 
well to be consistent. I'd rather see the Makefile just overwrite these 
four files, but use --backup=numbered for any true "configuration" files 
that are installed.
