[ircd-ratbox] Config file error

The example config(s) file contains an error.

I spent a hour or more trying to figure out why the 'disable_auth'
command was not working. I was setting it to yes but to no avail. I
finally tracked it down:

It turns out the example.conf (and example.efnet.conf) is missing a
closing comment */ on the line
prior to the disable_auth. It seems everything is considered commented
out until the parser reaches the next opening /*. Therefore disable_auth
is ignored and defaults to no.
