a) I think it would be better to have full pathnames.
b) In my case the fields are really empty.
I tried a bit and it seems they get auto-detected once you have
a .pruneconfig file, even if that is partially empty.
But as this file is only created when the user manually chooses to do so
in the program, I'd still vote to patch the sources to include the
debian standard paths for the programs.
