Yes, I know. But as you said already, this path is hardcoded at several
places and it would require very much work to fix it everywhere.
I will try to implement a '--with-vrootdir=<DIR>' ./configure option,
which hardcodes /vservers (or whatever you want) at compile-time.
The new configuration concept (alpha-branch) will handle this issue
completely different (/etc/vservers/<name>/vdir is symlink to
../.defaults/vdirbase/<name> by default). Since tools must/have been be
rewritten in large parts to cope with this, extensive changes in the
legacy code to make it runtime-configurable would not be worth the
Vserver mailing list
