I like the latter better because of the symmetry of -C with -D.
Btw., the following issues still need to be addressed:
- Location of SSL certificate files (Are they appropriate for /etc? What
does Apache do?)
- Location of secondary password files. By default they should probably
track pg_hba.conf. Is that enough?
- Location of charset.conf and the associated recode tables
For a start, putting all of these under -C is probably sufficient. More
complicated setups can be achieved using symlinks. ;-)
