Incorrect motion.conf file location

When I'm adding motion package, motion.conf file is placed as /opt/etc/motion.conf.

However, it is not working: if you execute motion -h, it will say:

Motion is configured using a config file only. If none is supplied,
it will read motion.conf from current directory, ~/.motion or /opt/etc/motion.

I moved motion.conf to /opt/etc/motion/motion.conf and now it is working as expected.

Please update installer so it will create the motion.conf file in the correct directory (or adjust /opt/etc/init.d/S99motion to use -c parameter for current file location)
