The configuration file for Squeezecenter used to be in the usual /etc/ directory and it now seems to be in the /var/lib/ directory.
Any particular reason for this change ?

FHS compatibility. The prefs file isn't really a static configuration file edited by the user and read by the application. It is more accurately a file containing variable state data written out by the application. That type of data belongs in /var/lib.

The RPM and deb provide a symlink in /etc/squeezecenter to make it easy to find for people used to the old behavior.
