I admit I also stumbled about this $HOME/.fis-gtm issue but was to tired

The alternatives system has the purpose to handle different alternative
packages. However, in the GT.M case there are no such alternatives

wil come soonish. So for the moment I do not see any need for making
things more complex for no current use.
