I'm a recent new user of orcallator.  I do like being able to specify 
an output dir for the orcallator files.  It helps to keep the $prefix 
arena clean of anything but binaries.  

In my multi-platform/version environment, each platform as it's 
own /usr/local tree.  Therefore all the data files needs to be in a 
common area that is easily accessible by all machines independent of 
the OS.

Please keep it. )

I used --with-rrd-dir    --with-orcallator-dir    --with-html-dir 
(duh)    as well as   --prefix
