We could do that, but we should not add to much "standard locations" to the
search path for config files. 
IMHO there are already too many dirs we search config files in. 
While running from CVS we certainly need 
(/etc/<basename>/ - not used if everything is in the CVS-tree)
(+ a fallback for windows)

Once gnumed is properly installed we will need
GNUMED_DIR/client/etc (as fallback)
(+ a fallback for windows)

Right now we search /etc, too. This might lead to name confusions. It's
better to separate gnumed config files.

So what we need is a proper way to find the GNUMED_DIR in both cases, either
set from the environment
or by some logic within gmCfg. If we assume that will always be in
client/wxpython, then it will be quite easy to determine the base dir. Is
this assumption correct ?
