(Original suggestion was made by Robert Johnson in bug #55376, comment #3.)

When nano is configured without the --prefix option, it is by default configure for a "local" install: at startup it will read /usr/local/etc/nanorc instead of /etc/nanorc.  For many users (including myself) this is unexpected and frustrating, because the self-compiled nano seems to ignore /etc/nanorc.

So, it would be nice if nano would print at the end of ./configure what paths the compiled nano will use for reading the two nanorc files.
