[Olsr-dev] default config is rfc

I installed the olsrd ipkg from openwrt and wondered why the 
olsrd.conf.default.rfc is the default olsrd.conf? Then I found out that it is 
even the default for olsrd? (as it is copied by the Makefile to olsrd.conf)

probably, it is the same for other distros like debian. I think you should 
make olsrd.conf.default.lq-fisheye the default conf file. I do not know any 
network that does use the hop count metric as in the rfc (because it prefers 
long high-loss links in a path to get a lower hop number). 

Also, this would be a big help for beginners. Think of the people getting in 
touch with the mailing list saying olsrd does not work well, only until they 
are told that they should use another config file.

kind regards,
