Sorry, no chance. Debian Policy. You also aren't allow to install your
packaged files under /usr/local/. It's one of the points why debian's
package management is "more stable" than everything I saw before.

It's not a big problem as long as the path to the global
configuration file is hardcoded in a .c or .h file.
