Here's what I put in the preinst of xaw-wrappers to move a conffile. I'm not
sure if the use of cat is required, but I have gotten no reports of this not

if [ ! -e /etc/X11/xaw-wrappers.conf -a -e /etc/xaw-wrappers.conf ]; then
        # Move conffile. I think it's safest to use cat here, becuase 
        # the user may have done something funky like made it be a sumlink.
        cat /etc/xaw-wrappers.conf > /etc/X11/xaw-wrappers.conf
rm -f /etc/xaw-wrappers.conf
