Awesome, thanks!

I've attached a small patch I came up with to brute-force the PREFIX.
The change in doesn't do it for me for some reason. What
happens is that the daemon starts up because the path to the config is
included in the command line. But all of the command line tools
subsequently need the -c option to tell them where it is. While not
particularly elegant, doing it this way has 2 additional benefits. First
it updates the documentation as well as the binaries, and second it
means less to edit when a new user is setting it up for the first time
because the defaults already work.

When you get your update ready feel free to cc me on the PR.
