[Firehol-support] File locations w. ipsets

Hi Phil,

I suppose to me the odd thing is that two executables from one source 
reference different places for their config? i.e. firehol itself looks 
in /etc/firehol/ but update-ipsets looks in /usr/local/etc/firehol/. I 
would have expected this to be the same between the two scripts (either 
both in the local dir or both in the system ones), but apols if it's 
like this for a reason beyond my v limited understanding of compiling stuff.

Thanks, that's useful. Might try it next time.

Thanks again for firehol, it remains the easiest to use and most 
flexible firewall I've come across.
