You can override the path by defining ROOTHINTS during compilation.

(the default path)

ahh ok, i think i see where my confusion comes from
so with 1.4.0 the hints module is automatically loaded?
I was excluding it from the config before

No, the module isn't loaded by default.
But the root hints are loaded from a file by default.
The module just exposes the functionality.
(and adds the possibility of non-root hints)
