puzzled by crash solution

Trying to understand why my installed product was crashing when calling
[NSColor whiteColor]

I had an hint it might be a resource problem, furthermore
+ [NSColor initialize]
   call initSystemColors()
   which calls [NSColorList colorListNamed: @"System"]
   which calls [NSColorList _loadAvailableColorLists]
   which calls
 e = [NSSearchPathForDirectoriesInDomains(NSLibraryDirectory,
   NSAllDomainsMask, YES) objectEnumerator];

 while ((dir = (NSString *)[e nextObject]))
     BOOL flag;

     dir = [dir stringByAppendingPathComponent: @"Colors"];
     if (![fm fileExistsAtPath: dir isDirectory: &flag] || !flag)
  // Only process existing directories

     de = [fm enumeratorAtPath: dir];
     while ((file = [de nextObject]))
  if ([[file pathExtension] isEqualToString: @"clr"])
      NSString *name = [file stringByDeletingPathExtension];
      newList = [[NSColorList alloc] initWithName: name
               fromFile: [dir stringByAppendingPathComponent: file]];
      [_gnustep_available_color_lists addObject: newList];

Now the intersting bit is, when I installed GNUstep with the install 1.10.1
it created the following dir structure:
                   <no Colors directory>
And when I checked the version build from CVS it doesn't contains the
C:\GNUstep\Library\ directory
(nor does it contains C:\GNUstep\System\Tools\Library\Colors\System.clr)

Anyway I copied the content of C:\GNUstep\Library into the Library folder I ship with my application and that fixes the problem.

But a problem remain, where does this C:\GNUstep\Library folder comes from?

1. it's not generated by the various make (install) and I followed these directions:

2. it's essential to run any graphical application! not that I used GNUstep to draw (I'm using .NET), but I do use NSColor & such...
