Yes, I found it (in a way) in my installation logs, too.
But I am one of these evil, package-building persons ;-), so I use
DESTDIR builds wherever possible. It seems that bit me again, as my
package build didn't package the dir as well as didn't complain about
unpackaged  files (which is true as it is not a file but a dir ... oh yes..)
