[PATCH] Install config files

From: Mike Frysinger <>

glibc comes with a bunch of config files that every distro hand installs
because glibc itself doesn't take care of it.  Update glibc to do the work.


I decided this would be useful and found a patch Mike made back in 2011:

>From that thread, I concluded that installing nscd.conf and gai.conf was
considered reasonable, because most distributions install then as defaults
anyway and all (most?) packaging systems can replace them with a version
the distro wants or remove them anyway.

The consensus was not to install nssswitch.conf, so that was removed from
this patch.

	* nscd/Makefile (install-others): Define.
	($(inst_sysconfdir)/nscd.conf): New rule.
	* posix/Makefile (install-others): Define.
	($(inst_sysconfdir)/gai.conf): New rule.
