I agree for config/*, which should be the results of the configuration process 
and I find that should as it is now, override system wide defaults.

I do not agree for command line parameters, it will really surprise me if I 
specify both a conffile and a custom parameter via command line option and 
the latter will be overruled by the config file.

I think also that LH_CONFFILE should be moved above although below config/*
