 I don't think so.
 site.def uses site local specific setting.
 Distribution common settings should not into this file.

 Please define `waht is GNUish system' and `waht is GNUish systems
common stuff', I can not image them.

 Currently linux.cf already have Distribution specific part,
and most of all of entries are shared linux.cf and gnu.cf, netbsd.cf
and gfbsd.cf. So, I'll happy to split off them to common file easy to
maintain them.
