Ticket #3184 (new bug)
package.conf should be under /var, not /usr

/usr is the second major section of the filesystem. /usr is shareable, read-only data. That means that /usr should be shareable between various FHS-compliant hosts and must not be written to. Any information that is host-specific or varies with time is stored elsewhere.
package.conf is not shareable, as different machines may have different packages installed, so we should put it under /var instead.
