It can only be a typo, the question is what should be do, continue
using the wrongly typed macro or introduce something new in parallel
(_initdir or _rcinitdir for instance), and have the old one being
deprecated?

I'd like the latter to happen, but since this is a cosmetic buglet and
only seen by people under the hood it will be considered low priority
by whoever would decide this.
