I don't think globash needs such customizing.
I just think that if an environment support some mechanism like home_etc,
GLOBAL should obey it not to be isolated from the rest.

I understand.

How about this?

        if [ -n "$HOME_ETC" ]; then

The GLOBASH_HOME facility is independent of home_etc facility, I think.

OK. I'll use '/usr/local'.
