How can I move such stuff into /etc without making package broken? Thanks very much.

usually with a configure option like "--sysconfdir=/etc" or something along those lines if you navigate into the source directory and run ./configure --help it wil give you configure options available to you.

File a bug report for any /usr/etc packages...

If you're in a rush to move stuff from /usr/etc, you should be able to easily change the PKGBUILD to put them in /etc, in most cases. Probably anything in /usr/etc has to be done explicitly in the PKGBUILD file, so install from ABS.

Or if the code itself wont give you the option of putting the config in /etc you could at least use symbolic links in /etc so they can at least be found.

Re: How to deal with /usr/etc/stuff

that is very messy. in cases like that it is easier to patch the makefiles.
