info 6.1: Wgetrc Location

Once wgetrc is installed from binary, how do I know what the exact location of 
the global configuration file is?

I can ask the distributor to provide configure log, but  this is rather arcane 
and undocumented, and I can ask the package manager, but that is just guessing. 
 If I compiled wget from source and I forgot my configure decisions, I am done.
