No, no, this should not be hardcoded in galois.c in the first place.
The proper way would be to have a default() for the path to data files, 
here set to /home/igor/local/lib/pari/, and make galois.o to look in 

This way we can add new datafile without changing GP: we just need to
use another suffix instead of galdata.
