#77 gentoo --help reports old startup files location

v1.0 (example)
Interface (27)

I run the following command:

$ gentoo --help | grep rc
--no-rc Do not load the ~/.gentoorc configuration file; instead, use default values
--no-gtk-rc Do not load the ~/.gentoogtkrc GTK+ configuration file; instead, use system defaults

It suggests the .gentoorc file is located in $HOME, whereas on it is installed in $HOME/.config/gentoo

Makefile.am:21: < ~/.config/gentoo/gentoorc >gentoorc.i

$ gentoo --version

$ uname -a
Linux dog 3.3.8-1-ARCH #1 SMP PREEMPT Tue Jun 5 15:20:32 CEST 2012 x86_64 GNU/Linux

    Time to close this, the fix has been released a long time ago.
