Clean up config file searching.

As pointed out by jeffx, we didn't allow non-root
users to use the /etc/oz/oz.cfg file by default,
though there is no good reason not to.  Additionally
I noticed that we never allowed the root user to have
a private ~/.oz/oz.cfg file.  We fix these issues and
a couple of more issues with this commit (more info
about the algorithm is in the code comments).

Oz is a set of programs and classes to do automated installations of
operating systems.  It is useful for creating virtual machine disk
images containing an operating systems and, optionally, programs.

The best way to install it is to make an RPM out of it by running "make rpm"
or "make srpm", and then installing the resulting RPM on the target machine.

Once you have the RPM installed, you will need to build up TDL files to feed
as input into the building process.  Please see the examples directory to get
an idea of what a TDL file looks like.
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
