You will most certainly get a veto coming the BSD fraction (including
me) here, as

  1) this should be either /usr/X11/etc/ or /usr/local/etc because it
     is NOT a system related config file. On BSD, /etc is _only_ for
     operating system related configs, you (in general) are welcome to
     put stuff there, but an additional software package _must_not_.

  2) it's not called '.../GNUstep/' but '.../WindowMaker/'
     as in /usr/X11R6/etc/WindowMaker/

You assume too much.
