Of course you can drop the file into the dir - but it's much better to find
out why it was not installed.
You configured PackageKit with
./configure --enable-emerge prefix=/usr
Do you have locate installed? Is there a file named
org.freedesktop.PackageKit.conf installed on your system?
(locate org.freedesktop.PackageKit.conf in Terminal)
I don't know much about Nova Linux (it's the Cuba-Linux, right?), but on
Debian "locate" is installed by default.
Maybe the file was installed into /usr/local by accident?
