Force Midnight Commander to exit in current directory

I have some Gentoo systems that have mc installed, but it’s default behaviour is to exit to the directory it was run from. I wanted to change this, because most of the time I’m using it to navigate the filesystem and then after exiting mc I want to be dropped to the directory I have navigated to. To achieve this you can issue this little script which will force Midnight Commander to exit in this directory.

mkdir /etc/profile.d
cat > /etc/profile.d/ << EOF
if [ /usr/libexec/mc/ ]; then
    . /usr/libexec/mc/
chmod 775 /etc/profile.d/
