Yes, you should replace <UMFPACKv4.4_root>, but the version 4.6 can have 
  other directory structure, so you might need to replace more to 
specify where libumfpack.a and libamd.a actually are.

I doubt that having a site.cfg in the SVN would be useful (people's 
configurations differ), but what about adding site.cfg.example where all 
available sections and relevant fields would be listed, e.g.

library_dirs = <location of libumfpack.a and libamd.a>
include_dirs = <location of umfpack.h>
umfpack_libs = umfpack, amd

Or should this go to the Wiki?
