} how about: a site admin wants to install a function for all users.

And the site admin can't determine where to do this by simply looking
at the value of $fpath?  If he's automating it for a bunch of dissimilar
platforms he's back to being a software packager.

I'm leaving this to PWS as he made the changes to configure.ac.  I will
however note that I think --disable-site-fndir ought to do exactly that,
and the documentation blurb is what needs fixing.  If the shell is being
configured for some kind of secure/embedded environment, removing all
access to locally added functions is perfectly reasonable.
