i would say that both the plugins and Nagios::Plugin should have
a single default location, which equates to the same config root
where the rest of the files would go in a default "make install",
with a sensible filename. 

as long as both of the above provide a way to override this setting
(i.e. by setting passing some cmdline option when building/installing
or having the location in an easily patchable location), i don't see
there being any problem.  plus, one will always be able to override
it at runtime too.
