We don't currently set any file specific paths in the configure step
to my knowledge, and I don't think this is a good place to start. The
things we do set are based on semantics, ie, localstatelibdir,
localstaterundir, localstatelogdir. Semantically speaking, the
localstaterundir is the best place for couch.uri as outlined
