Doesn't look like configurable.

I have many times seen random non-config files marked as
%config(noreplace) in very old .specs just because they are in /etc.
This instance also predates mdv SVN migration (unfortunately their CVS
has been brought down).

(maybe rpmlint wrongly warned about them many many years ago, causing
people to add unwanted %config flags...)
