The configuration directory is not searched for alluxio-site.properties

Description

By default, we search the classpath, ${user.home}/.alluxio/, and /etc/alluxio/, but not ${alluxio.conf.dir}/. This is usually fine since ${alluxio.conf.dir} is often on the classpath, but when it isn't on the classpath it's very confusing that setting ALLUXIO_CONF_DIR=/tmp/ and passing -Dalluxio.conf.dir=/tmp/ won't cause Alluxio to read /tmp/alluxio-site.properties.
