Hmmm... maybe; now that you say it, I don't know why they go under
etc... to run windowmaker you must run wmaker.inst the first time,
which creates ~/GNUstep with those files inside. So, can I change
them to share/WindowMaker?

The files are:
darkstar:/usr/pkg/etc% ls -l WindowMaker
total 15
-r--r--r--   1 root     wheel         375 May 22 15:55 WMGLOBAL
-r--r--r--   1 root     wheel        4521 May 22 15:55 WMRootMenu
-r--r--r--   1 root     wheel         960 May 22 15:55 WMState
-r--r--r--   1 root     wheel        2176 May 22 15:55 WMWindowAttributes
-r--r--r--   1 root     wheel        4328 May 22 15:55 WindowMaker

And all of them appere in ~/GNUstep/Defaults, after running wmaker.inst.


Of course it runs NetBSD -
