This is wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong. On BSD (ie Non-Linux) systems, this
is absolutely, categorically, without a doubt the incorrect place to put this
file. BSD's have /usr/local/etc and /usr/etc for a reason. Just because
99% of Linux distros don't use this models does not mean it shouldn't be
used when the mechanism exists. GNUstep is not Linux specific and we
should not be so presumptuous as to try and make it so. This patch should
not be hard coded, and should be something that is determined by the
configure script based on the OS.
