This packages changes the location of the systemwide startup and shutdown files without changing the corresponding documentation. The man pages still refer to the defaults paths, like `/etc/zprofile` instead of `/etc/zsh/zprofile`. This is confusion, because the documentation does not match the provided package. If the paths are changed, I think the documentation should be changed as well.

It might be worth raising this issue upstream, such that the configure script takes care of this. Until then, a simple search and replace should suffice.

Affected paths:

* /etc/zshenv -> /etc/zsh/zshenv
* /etc/zlogin -> /etc/zsh/zlogin
* /etc/zlogout -> /etc/zsh/zlogout
* /etc/zprofile -> /etc/zsh/zprofile
* /etc/zshrc -> /etc/zsh/zshrc
This task depends upon
