I think we're starting to talk about orthogonal issues. If you mean a
couchdb installed in the home directory, in say, ~/couchdb/, then they
would've had to do something like ./configure --prefix=~/couchdb/
which would make the default couch.uri path
~/couchdb/var/run/couch.uri. Prefixes don't go away based on where its

If instead you mean the desktopcouch case that just has a custom
configuration, then they have the ability to set the path of the URI
file to their liking which is all that's needed.

If instead you meant something else, its still configurable so it can
be put where ever the user wants.
