[sudo-workers] Adding a second sysconfdir

Has there been any agreement between the autoconf maintainters as
to what the option should be called?  The last time I checked there
was a discussion about using and adminconfdir instead of distconfdir:


I think that the adminconfdir proposal better matches what you want.
In this case you would use:

    --sysconfdir=/usr/etc --adminconfdir=/etc

so files in /etc would override those in /usr/etc.

That conversation appears to have died out in February.  I was
hoping this would show up in some form in autoconf 2.72 but that
seems unlikely now.
