[Openswan Users] RPM file locations

Where do the various RPM, DEB, etc installations place openswan
configuration files? I know the manual installation defaults to /etc/,
/etc/ipsec.d and the Mandrake RPMs use /etc/freeswan,
/etc/freeswan/ipsec.d.  What other common variations are out there?

Among many other things, ISCS automatically creates the configuration
files and we want the configurator to manage the problem of the
configuration file locations and not the user! Thus we need to know what
to anticipate. Thanks - John
