To be FHS compliant, you should either symlink the following files to /etc/mc,
or compile mc to look for them there:
/usr/lib/mc/mc.ini (not supplied by default, but looked up by mc)
I'd prefer to see this patch upstream than in RH.
I looked at the source, and what debian did.
It's apparently just a compile option issue:
debian's diff has:
