  * See horde/config/prefs.php for documentation on the structure of this file.
  * Local overrides MUST be placed in prefs.local.php or prefs.d/.

The definition of local overrides is in horde/config/prefs.php, which  
is explicitly referenced.  Seems very clear from the name and the  
definition that prefs.local.php contains ONLY local overrides, not a  
copy of prefs.php.

Suggested text would be great.
