Can some ports install config files inside '/usr/local/etc'?

Nothing in macports will be installing to /usr/local. If you have anything in that area it has been put there by some other means. Maybe homebrew?, but also a number of third party installers sometimes use this directory as well (which are the reasons why MacPorts specifically ignores this area).

In the former, it contains 'unbound.config', while in the latter it contains 'root.key' and 'unsound.config-dist' (a file with contents identical to 'unbound.config'). That seems to happen to particular ports only, though. Anyone experiencing that? Are these folders really unnecessary?
