That's a build time condition, not something that's decided at runtime
so I'm not sure that this logic belongs in the user facing
documentation.  The technically correct change would be to use
"$(sysconfdir)/gitconfig" but I think that will just confuse users more.

Since we have a build step for the documentation, I wonder if it's
possible to replace these with the correct directory at build time.

I guess this isn't true either. Anyone has a better way of
specifiying where the system wide config file is read from,
or a user-parseable definition of $(prefix) ?

Might work for documentation. I'd like a run-time variant for my
particular problem, but the one I found now, e.g. git rev-parse --show-prefix"
does not work in the general case. I want to tell JGit where the system
wide configuration file is, even before we have a git repository.

	... the system-wide configuration file (typically
	/etc/gitconfig), rather than the repository specific
	configuration file (.git/config)

should be sufficient.
