: Sigh...unfortunately, my sysconfdir isn't consistent across different
: customers. Each has his own convention/location for sysconfdir..

How different are the conventions?  They can't be that bad.  Would
symlinks from /etc/ssh suffice?

How about browbeating the customers into accepting the standard
location (/etc/ssh), reminding them of the benefits that real
portability <http://cr.yp.to/compatibility.html> gives them?
