megatron:~ mt$ ls -l /etc
lrwxr-xr-x@ 1 root  admin  11 Feb 21  2008 /etc -> private/etc


iow /etc is linked to /private/etc . They are the same place.

This is a compromise for system robustness. Files under /private are
invisible to Finder to prevent Muggles from noticing them and messing
with things they're better off not knowing about.

More a Mac question than a Python one.
