[Bug-gnuzilla] Default Search Engine

When I installed IceCat on Parabola, I got the privacy conscious La
Quadrature as the default default search engine*.  When I installed
IceCat on GuixSD, I got Google as the default default search engine.

What is the upstream default search engine?

Should GNU distributions set this themselves?

If the latter is the case, it would still be a good idea if the upstream
default default search engine were a privacy conscious search engine.

Related to this issue, a bit of browsing through the files at
https://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/gnuzilla/ ** shows that the Google search
engine was removed in icecat-31.2.0 but not anymore in icecat-52.0.2.
That is probably fine (and discussed before on this mailinglist), but
the default should not fall back to Google.



* With this I mean the default search engine that is selected when
  IceCat is first start, i.e. there is no ~/.mozilla/ when starting
** These appear builds, not source code as mentioned elsewhere
